The first wave of invited foreign athletes for the Feb. 3 Beppu-Oita Mainichi Marathon arrived in Oita on Jan. 30.  This year's Beppu-Oita Mainichi Marathon will feature a total of five invited athletes from abroad.  Greeted at the race hotel on Feb. 3 by race officials were Poland's Adam Draczynski, 12th at last year's race, and, making his Beppu-Oita debut, Abdelkrim Boubker of Morocco.

The Beppu-Oita Mainichi Marathon starts at noon on Feb. 3 in front of Umitamago near Mt. Takasaki. This year's race promises to be white-hot.
