Course Change for Tokyo Marathon 2017

2016/4/8

Tokyo Marathon, which started in 2007, has successfully completed the 10th anniversary event with your support.
During these years, the sceneries along the course have changed with the redevelopment, and the race itself has also changed influenced by the world's fast marathon races and the internationalization of the wheelchair race.
In this regard, the Tokyo Marathon Foundation has decided to make changes to the course for Tokyo Marathon 2017, focusing on two points: to make a better public appeal of Tokyo's fascination to people from home and abroad; to set the fast course which allows athletes to target new records.

Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building -> Iidabashi -> Kanda -> Nihonbashi -> Asakusa Kaminari-mon -> Ryogoku -> Monzen-nakacho -> Ginza -> Takanawa -> Hibiya -> Tokyo Station & Gyoko-dori
