News about TOKYO MARATHON

The new series of "RUN as ONE - GLOBAL Virtual Run Series 2021/2022" will launch soon!

2021/8/4

The Tokyo Marathon Foundation will kick off the new series of "RUN as ONE - GLOBAL Virtual Run Series". The series consists of 8 events where runners can participate and enjoy the event regardless of where they are using a running app. By introducing a virtual event, we hope runners will have an opportunity to feel connected and enjoy running more within their daily life.

Furthermore, all runners who complete an event within the outlined conditions will be eligible to be part of the drawing to win a guaranteed, non-complimentary entry to the Tokyo Marathon 2023.

The registration to the "1st Challenge" (held August 21 - August 27) will open on August 6! The event is available globally as long as the specified app can track you. Join us in the fun!

We will announce details for the 2nd Challenge and more as soon as it is decided.
