Introduction of My Entry (Going Paperless)

A “My Entry” webpage is automatically created for all registrants. Registrants can now use “My Entry” to electronically check information for participation, finisher certificates, and other information that was mailed in the past.
*If registrants require printed materials, we ask them to make their own arrangements for the printing.

Repurposing the Marathon Flags

The 402 flags manufactured for the Tokyo Marathon 2019 will be repurposed as bags. In the interest of supporting employment opportutinies for people with disabilities, the bags will be created at fabric manufacturing company that employs people with disabilities. The bags will be available for purchase at JOGPORT ARIAKE in mid-August, and we will donate a portion of the profits to Tokyo Goodwill Bank (Tokyo Council of Social Welfare).
*We will release information about the quantity and sale price in early August.

No-Baggage Runners

We welcome No-Baggage Runners* who appear at the starting area with no baggage, and we will provide original poncho at the finish for them to wear as they leave the venue.
We are working to reduce CO² emissions by reducing the number of trucks used to transport runners’ baggage.
*Runners who register in the following categories can opt to be No-Baggage Runners at the time of entry:
・ONE TOKYO Premium Member Entry
・Tokyo Resident Entry
・General Entry

Establishment of YOFUKUPOST Boxes for Secondhand Clothing

We will cooperate with the NPO Yofukupost Network Meeting to carry out activities to support the reuse of clothing. These activities involve the introduction of “YOFUKUPOST,” a system in which wearable (but currently unused) clothing is collected so that secondhand markets outside of Japan will have the opportunity to resell the items to deliver it to the people in need.
(Total of 3,740 kg/26,180 yen donated to the Tokyo Goodwill Bank (Tokyo Council of Social Welfare).)

Use of Electric Cars and Electric Motorcycles

Supported by BMW, SECOM and NIHON KOHDEN

We are working to reduce CO² emissions by using electric cars as lead vehicles for runners, and electric motorcycles as emergency response motorcycles and pacemaker control bike.
(Usage number for 2019: 1 electric cars, 3 electric motorcycles)

Use of Plant-Based Synthetic Fabric

We will use environmentally friendly synthetic fibers derived from plants as fabric for volunteer wear and EXPO bags.

Use of Thinned Wood

In an effort to be eco-friendly, the cups used at the water-aid stations are made from recycled woodchips.

Tokyo Marathon Charity

We hope to provide the people who run, support and cheer on the Tokyo Marathon the opportunities to think about social contribution and provide an opportunity to make a social change. Through this, we hope to link all individual hearts to the society.
The Tokyo Marathon manages the charity program with such hopes in mind.
