    The point of sportswear

    Muse, Published on 18/03/2017

    » The world of exercise can come along with its whole set of gear and it does make one wonder: just how crucial it is to shell out at least 3,000 baht for a pair of support leggings?

    All the way around

    » It is hardly a surprise that despite being among the 10 most expensive marathons in the world, the Kyoto Marathon is the eighth-most-registered. Perhaps the picturesque mountains, free strawberries from spectators and smiling monks lend a hand. With 16,000 runners from around the world landing in this old capital and another 15,000 volunteers all along the 42km route, it's an event of a grand scale that sees the whole city on shutdown with people coming together to revitalise Kyoto through sport, especially since the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011.
