Comedian Kanpei Hazama, 59, departed Osaka Wednesday at the start of his 36,000-km around-the-world jogging and sailing “Earth Marathon” that he expects to take at least two years to complete and whose progress will be closely reported on TV and a Web site.

The organizer said Hazama will keep going eastward, sailing across the Pacific, jogging across the United States, sailing across the Atlantic and then running across Europe and Asia before returning to Japan.
