Japan is one of the world's running cradles: each year 580,000 Japanese finish a marathon. Long distance races are a veritable religion in the Land of the Rising Sun. "Maraton Man" travels to Sapporo to run the Hokkaido marathon, where he meets two grandparents who will steal his heart: Mr Koraro and Mrs. Noto. He, at 78, runs all the marathons he can and she, at 65, has become a specialist in mountain "ultra trails", running for 30 hours non-stop.
