Akaba to Run London Marathon

For the second straight year Yukiko Akaba (Team Hokuren) will double in January's Osaka International Women's Marathon and April's London Marathon. In 2010 Akaba led Osaka on 2:20-2:21 pace before dropping out, then went on to run a PB of 2:24:55 in London, the fastest time of the year by a Japanese woman. In Osaka 2011 she will be seeking a spot on the 2011 World Championships team before heading to London presumably to go for a fast time. If all goes according to schedule she will then run the World Championships marathon in August.
