As one of the ultra-runners in Taiwan, running around the island has always been my ultimate goal. Though I can no longer set foot on every piece of the land with my own steps, I feel lucky and appreciate to have the opportunity to fulfill my dream with ultra-runners from various countries by riding a tricycle. I shall not give up and will do my best.

In March 2011, just upon the Great East Japan Earthquake disaster; a year later, in February to March, 2012, I ran around the Taiwan Island to share the feeling of gratitude with Taiwanese people. During that time, I was also given a lot of support from them. I would like to run this race with the participants and the local people to thank again for.
