About 100 U.S. citizens defied a travel warning issued by the State Department and visited North Korea earlier this month to run a marathon celebrating the birthday of the regime’s founder Kim Il-sung.
There will be a couple runners intent on running this marathon with wearable robots. The marathon is set to take place this weekend in Tokyo. On Saturday and Sunday, separate races will feature two variations of runners sporting robots feeding them healthy tomatoes.
Two Australians who love running have shown their support for the Umbrella Movement and universal suffrage by completing an unusually shaped route around Hong Kong.
