Born in Omachi City, Nagano Prefecture, at the foot of the Northern Alps.
Born in Omachi City, Nagano Prefecture, at the foot of the Northern Alps. Ruy Ueda was a soccer and track and field athlete until he entered high school. He ran long distance at his high school, which was Japan's No. 1 in ekiden (relay race), but repeated injuries prevented him from achieving any results. During his college years, he discovered trail running, and it blossomed. He won his debut race with a new record and went on to become the world's best trail runner.

I like it so much that I wear it almost all the time when I train because it doesn't block my ears, so I can detect danger from cars, and I can talk with my friends while wearing it when I run with them.
