What is the Tokyo Marathon?
The Tokyo Marathon is one of the Abbott World Marathon Majors and one of the biggest marathons in Japan. The course runs through the heart of Japan's capital city and sees both recreational runners and the world's best elite runners pound the streets to complete the iconic course.
Every year up to 38,000 participants travel from around the world to take on Tokyo's annual 26.2-mile (42.2-km) footrace . The theme of the Tokyo Marathon is 'The Day We Unite', which can be seen and felt in the city on race day as it brings together runners, volunteers and spectators from all over Japan and beyond.
Whether you are planning to take on the challenge and run the Tokyo Marathon or provide some much-needed support from the sidelines, you are in for a treat. Spend the day soaking up the electric atmosphere and watch as the city becomes one big race day party.

To participate in the Tokyo Marathon you must be at least 19 years old on race day and be able to complete the course within 6.5 hours.
