Tokyo Marathon

The news came yesterday, for some, that they had gainned a place to run in the Tokyo Marathon. I heard that there were 90,000 applicants and 30,000 will be chosen to run, they do this by lottery.

I applied but haven't heard yet, they are sending emails to everyone whether they got a place or not, so I'm a little worried that I can't go. This will be the first such mass participation marathon held in Tokyo and they want it to soon rival the likes of NY, London, and Berlin marathons.

Anyone else applied and heard yet?

Fingers crossed.


  1. How exciting!!! I would love to run a marathon in Tokyo.

    Can't wait to hear if you got it or not. 30,000 runners WOW!

  2. Woow! They most organize more marathons, looks like there are many runners among the japaness!

    Fingers croos you are one of the lucky winners!!
