The Culver City Sister City Committee, a non-profit international and intercultural community organization, is looking for one male and one female runner to run the 23rd Annual Osaka Senshu International City Marathon, Feb. 19, 2017.

Applicants must be over 18 years of age, be consistent runners, fit and in good health, be able to run a mostly flat course in winter conditions, be keen on representing Culver City and be interested in, embracing, contributing and participating in the sister city relationship while in Kaizuka and upon your return home.
