A runner who continues to challenge extreme long-distance running on the world stage.
He is a unique super-ultrarunner who “wants to run anything long distance,” from 100km to 1,500km.

While stationed in Germany as an automobile engineer, he began training for running in earnest and fell in love with the sport while running in a rich natural environment.
He has been a champion of many races, with brilliant results not only in domestic races in Japan but also in ultra races overseas.

He has appeared in many media, including a feature project on NHK’s popular “Great Race” program, and has garnered attention.

Wataru Iino

Date of birth:

43 years old
30 October 1979
Run to eat delicious food without worrying about calories

(as of March 2023)

In my 20s, I was a backpacker, and in my 30s, I traveled to many countries as an expatriate.
While it is fascinating to efficiently tour the sights of each country, what is even more impressive and memorable is “the journey to get there”.
By using your own feet, you can meet local people who are not tourists, eat local food, and encounter unnamed nature, all of which cannot be seen or felt through travel catalogs or SNS.
It will be a epic challenge to running around the world, but I hope that I can use the experience I have cultivated and my unwavering running ability to share the excitement of this journey in a timely manner and make you all feel a little bit inspired to go and run there as well.
