We hope to create a safe Tokyo Marathon 2021 together with you against COVID-19.

To protect yourself and fellow runners from start to finish, we request for your cooperation and participation in the countermeasures.

① Baggage check is unavailable on race day. Come to the start ready-to-go. (Make sure not to forget your bib and timing chip!)

③ Air high-five to cheer on each other.
