Team Kadena cheered on runners during the 2018 Okinawa Marathon.

This race is quite the spectacle, with participants wearing costumes the entire course.

Many fan favorites returned this year, including Darth Vader, Beer Guy, Samurai Guy, Panda Girl, and [Bernard's picks]. Sadly, the fully dressed-up Pikachu runner did not make it to Kadena this year.

We wish you the best of luck next year, dear Pikachu.
