Special Running Event In Japan!
Wait...
It is not a normal running event that you have participated.
You need something special and more...


Hey, how can be a running event so special?

Today, we have a more interesting running event for you!
You don't need your sportswear this time.
Instead, you need a ...........COSTUME!


Sure! I have a few Halloween costumes in my closet.
Which cute ones do you want?
Cat woman?




Or a cute little devil?

Sorry! For this special running event, you need this COSTUME!

Wait a minute!
Is that the signature outfit of the famous Wally from Where's Wally??
I can recognize the red and white striped hat and top, and of course the black-rimmed glasses!!

Yes, you got it!
A very special event, "WHERE'S WALLY, Wally Run"
is going to be held in Osaka and Aichi in October 2016!

Who is Wally?


Wally is the main character of a series of children's books "Where's Wally" which is written and created by English illustrator Martin Handford. In the books, you can find different pictures with thousands of people and items, and what you need to do is find Wally who is hiding in these pictures!! 

Wally in Japan

Actually Wally is a famous character in Japan too. On Halloween day, you can see a lot of people dress up like Wally and walk on the streets!
