Miya-run started at the Utsunomiya castle.

A running event, called MIYA-RUN, was held on April 22nd. Its catch phrase was:
“Run through Utsunomiya-city, and enjoy the sights and sweets!!”
The marathon course for MIYA-RUN passed along the Utsunomiya belt line of 42km.
During the event, the runners were offered Utsunomiya sweets at every 5 km, 9 points in total.

The picture shows what sweets they were offered.

9 sweets from Utsunomiya sweet shops offered at each point

I hadn’t known about this event until it was reported on the Shimotsuke newspaper on the next day.

The Shimotsuke reported MIYA-RUN on April 23rd.

I wish I could have participated in this fun event!
