WELCOME TO THE TOKYO MARATHON
February 23, 2014
We are pleased to be appointed the exclusive tour operator in the US and Canada for the 2014 Tokyo Marathon on February 23. The event has become the most popular running event in Japan if not the world with about 320,000 runners vying for a bib number in the lottery. We offer a guaranteed entry when you book one of our packages.
Tokyo was selected as the 6th World Marathon Major on November 4, 2012. The demand for this event from international runners will surely increase.
Running has always been a revered sport in Japan. Naoko Takahashi was the first woman to break the 2:20 barrier when she ran 2:19:46 in the 2002 Berlin Marathon. The country was known mostly for the Fukuoka Marathon and Osaka Ladies Marathon which were created for elite athletes only. The Tokyo Marathon has embaced all runners in an attempt to become one of the world's most popular international events.
We had a very successful trip with about 60 runners in 2013. We will be able to guaranteed a large number of runners and supporters in 2014.
Please review our package features. We can also customize a complete itnerary for optional extensions.
