Announcing the Tokyo Marathon Friendship Run 2021

2021/7/19

The Tokyo Marathon Friendship Run 2021 will be held on October 16 (Sat.), the day before the Tokyo Marathon 2021!

This event began in 2012 as a fun run event to foster friendship through interaction between Japanese runners and overseas runners visiting Japan.

Unfortunately, this year due to travel restrictions, we will miss our runners from abroad, but we would like to invite everyone living in Japan to join our relay event!

Living in Japan in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic, there's a lot that we can relate to each other now.
This relay event will be an opportunity to create an emotional bond with others, while sharing our hope for the day when we can all gather again.

Join us to enjoy running together, and foster an international friendship stronger than ever before!

The Entry will open from 10 a.m. on July 26, 2021.
