The marathon course at the Tokyo Marathon 2022 symbolises the past, present and the future of Tokyo. The race starts in front of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building and ends at the Tokyo Station. The city race covers the different districts of Tokyo – Shinjuku, Iidabashi, Kanda, Nihonbashi, Asakusa Kaminari-mon, Ryogoku, Monzen-nakacho, Ginza, Takanawa, Hibiya and Gyoko-dori. We will catch a glimpse of the Tokyo Tower, see the packed crowd of supporters in front of Tokyo’s oldest temple, Senso-ji, in Asakusa, and feel the positive energy of the volunteers & supporters throughout the whole marathon route. This new race course is generally flat and fast, and the marathon will finish next to the Imperial Palace. At the 2017 edition, Wilson Kipsang came close to the record, falling short of a minute; but we think this course will see many runners setting personal best times, and possibly a world record set on this course.
It is indeed the biggest race in Asia, one of the best-organized events in the world, and worthy of its status as one of the Abbott World Marathon Majors. It will be held on Sunday 6th March 2022*.
*Due to the current situation (COVID) in Japan, the organisers have made the decision to restrict the number of runners for the event, and it will be held for domestic runners only. All international runners (from overseas) will not be permitted to take part in the 2022 event.
However, we will be back for the Tokyo Marathon in 2023 - watch this space for more information for our 2023 tour to Tokyo.
