On the first day of the 2010 National Jitsugyodan Track and Field Championships, Sept. 24 at Niigata's Big Swan Stadium, Kenyan ace Paul Tanui (Team Kyudenko) emerged victorious in the men's 10000 m with an excellent time of 27:22.32, outkicking sub-27 man Josephat Ndambiri (Kenya/Team Komori Corp.) by less than second. Top Japanese honors went to former Toyo University captain Tomoya Onishi (Team Asahi Kasei) who ran a massive PB to finish 5th in 27:50.72, the best time of the year by a Japanese man and the fastest ever by a Japanese man at the Jitsugyodan Championships. Masato Kihara (Team Kanebo) and Takuya Fukatsu (Team Asahi Kasei) joined Onishi in going under 28 minutes for the first time, Kihara's time of 27:52.75 also under the previous Japanese meet record. Altogether nine men ran in the 27-minute range.

In the women's 10000 m, November's Asian Games 10000 m team member Ryoko Kizaki (Team Daihatsu) took down 3000 m, 5000 m and half marathon national record holder Kayoko Fukushi (Team Wacoal) in the final 100 m to win the 10000 m A-heat in 32:16.40. B-heat winner Yuka Takashima (Team Denso) was not far off the A-heat winner's level, taking the 'slower' heat in a PB of 32:22.93.
