About
The Tokyo Marathon has joined the ranks of World Marathon Majors, alongside London, Boston, Berlin, Chicago and New York, as the newest member of this exclusive club, having reached maturity incredibly quickly. Runners have two reasons to travel: one is for the race, of course, but the second is to experience running in a different culture - there are few cultural experiences that are so discernibly different to the UK than Japan. It's a fast course, symbolising the past, present and the future of Tokyo.

The best Marathon race so far. Courses is flat and weather is perfect. Water station is long enough, so I have time to grab a drink. Photographer is hardly to find at finishing line. Not like other race, theres tons of photographers taking pictures at finishing line. Walked too long to get foil blanket and its cold.

Nothing that I didnt know. The only thing that I would do different is arrive in Japan 1 week earlier. The Jet Lag hit me hard.

Did the Marathon in 2018
This race was a challenge! first because of the time difference in Tokyo it was 9 more hours. Then because the race is very fast in the first km and it was necessary to find the right pace to not have surprises at the end of the race!

Maybe just be prepared for the cold weather in Tokyo. Otherwise, its a beautiful and fairly fast marathon! Dont let yourselves be dragged by the crowd! Keep your pace, smile and enjoy it.

It was a great race. You can run with no frustration.But you must wait about one hour at the start line. It's cold every year. So you had better put on cape or something like that.

How is the best way to enter Tokyo as everything I see leads me to believe it is nearly impossible and good for age place not possible to achieve Also when is the ballot

Hey there, the Tokyo marathon has over 300,000 applications with only 36,000 being allowed to run. You can guarantee yourself a place by running a sub 3:30 for women and 2:55 for men. They are yet to announce when the ballot for the non-elite runners will open, however, if you save The Tokyo Marathon on the Lets Do This you will get a notification on when the ballot will open. All the best!
