A Japanese distance runner meandered his way into the history books during the Tokyo-Hakone relay marathon by turning the wrong way with just feet to go in the race.

Natsuki Terada's team was in eighth place when he followed a television truck in turning right when the finish line lay one city block away. He was able to recover in time to secure a 10th-place finish for his squad.

Poor guy.

Here's hoping the unfortunate incident leads to a Google Maps endorsement deal.
