Tokyo Marathon – Friendship run registration

Since I missed  out on the 5k run before the New York marathon, I’ve decided that I’m going to be as prepared as I can to be able to register for the other pre marathon Saturday races.

The Friendship run in Tokyo is only a 3.5k long fun run. So it’s not the usual 5k we’ve run in Chicago or the 5k Parkrun I’ve run in London before. But because we only plan to go to Tokyo once we have to do this , haha.

So the registration portal opened on the 7th of December 2018, 10am ( Tokyo time) which turned to be 1am UK time. Way too early to wake up, but I really didn’t want to miss out.

According to the email confirmation I was the 4th one who registered. Nice , easy and incredibly quick appliaction process.

Website to register: https://www.marathon.tokyo/en/events/friendshiprun/

Distance: 3.5km fun run

Filed size: 2000

Entry fee: JPY 3000 ( £21 / $27 / €24 / 7500Ft )

Date and time: Saturday, March 2, 2019

Venue: Symbol Promenade Park

Unfortunately there’s no finishers medal , but we are going to get an awesome looking Towel. Have to say I never got a finishing towel before, but looking forward to it. Also this will be a good preparation for the marathon, because at the finish of the marathon we are also getting a towel, but this will be a proper sized towel.

By the sounds of it Japanese people love towels. I’m so excited to get to know more about their culture when we are there.

77 days and we are flying, I can’t believe 🙂
