Last week, the annual Paris Marathon saw a new runner: CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama.

Dressed like Naruto to promote Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations, he ran 22 out of 42.195 kilometers. Or, you could say he ran a little over 35 miles.

A post on the CyberConnect2 blog today includes pictures of Matsuyama and local cosplayers, as well as photos of him trying to walk up the stairs after running the marathon.

    Wow, that is awesome. Nice way to promote too.
    22km is 13 miles, not 35 though.

    Unless you meant it the other way around – that he ran 35km, which is about 22 miles.
