We will host a Fun Run event of approximately 5km with the aim of welcoming runners from overseas, fostering interaction among domestic and international runners, and strengthening unity. Following the success of the previous edition, the event will take place in the Asakusa area, one of Japan's leading tourist destinations, with the cooperation of the local community!
The start-finish line of the race will be at the Athletic Field of Taito City Riverside Sports Center.
Not far from the Sensoji Kaminari-mon Gate of Sensoji Temple, part of the Tokyo Marathon course.
Along the scenic course around Sumida Park, runners will get a view of TOKYO SKYTREE.

The Friendship Run will be held for the first time in five years!
Let's have a blast at the Fun Run 5 km and remember that it's "The Day We Unite.”!
