<To the Registered Runners of Tokyo Marathon 2022>Tokyo Marathon 2022 Entry Deferral Selection Will Begin

2021/8/10

*Same message is delivered via email at 10 a.m. (JST) today to the runners of Tokyo Marathon 2022 who have the right to defer their entry.

As we have informed you via email sent on July 28, the Tokyo Marathon Foundation, working along with different experts, has decided to reduce the field size of the 2022 event due to the current situation surrounding COVID-19. The field size will be downsized from 38,000 to 30,000 to maintain physical distance within the event.

In order to adjust the number of entries to the new field size, we would like to request our expecting runners to voluntarily defer their entry to 2023. Please see below for details, and we would like to thank you in advance for voluntary cooperation.

Note, depending on the situation surrounding COVID-19, the outlined information is subject to change.
In case of changes, we will announce them separately.

1) Deferral Option
Deferral to the Tokyo Marathon 2023 [Sunday, March 5, 2023 (tentative)] is available.
If you wish to defer your entry, please do so through your My Entry between August 10, 10 a.m. (JST) and August 24, 5 p.m. (JST).

If you do not wish to defer your entry, the entry to the Tokyo Marathon 2022 shall be protected.
If you choose to defer, once the deferral is complete, you cannot change your choice.
Also, you will receive an email after deferring your entry. We advise you to keep that email for your record, since My Entry for future events is not available at this time for you to confirm your entry.

*Note, if you are a Charity Runner, you do not have to make additional donation.
