The Fukuoka marathon in 2012 showed, that once again, the level of competition in the marathon is so high that there are no shoe-ins. This photo gallery was created by Chuck Bartlett, the RN Website Director, who does several photo galleries a week (you can find more at www.runningnetwork.com). 

 The Fukuoka International marathon has been, for many of its years, the de facto year championship of the marathon. Derek Clayton broke 2:10 on the Fukuoka course, then went on to run 2:08:34 for a WR. Frank Shorter won four times in a row, as well as the Olympic marathon in 1972. Seko, DeCastella, the list goes on.

This year, Joseph Gitau won the race with a huge PB in 2:06.51.
