Dear Tokyo Marathon 2020 participating runners and volunteers,

Today, January 31, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global health emergency concerning the new coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government, Japan Association of Athletics Federations and other related governmental agencies are closely monitoring this coronavirus outbreak.

As the organizer of the Tokyo Marathon 2020, the Tokyo Marathon Foundation is working closely with these organizations and have a created response team to collect the most up-to-date information and implement safety measures accordingly.

Concurrently, we will continue to prepare for the event while monitoring the situation, and provide further information through our Tokyo Marathon official website and social channels.

We encourage all runners, volunteers and other related parties to monitor their own health and stay vigilant by adopting stringent hygiene practices.

Tokyo Marathon Foundation
