Is a varied course. The course after 2017 is expected to be a higher speed course because the bridge at the end of the course was off the route.
  • Initially,Coastal subcenterOne of the factors that chose the marathon finish is the capacity of the finish facility used by more than 3 runners and their family members.In the trial calculationTokyo DomeAlsoNational StadiumI knew it was difficult.In the city center like a major overseas tournamentparkThere was a plan to finish it, but at the first tournament, it became stormy weather in the middle of winter, and as a result, there was a roof and a vast accommodation facility.Tokyo Big SiteWas successful in setting the finish[7].
  • 2017The course has changed significantly from the Tokyo Marathon (Official WebsiteFrom (PDF file).The reason for the change in the course and finish point is that Tadaaki Hayano, the director of the Tokyo Marathon Foundation's business and also the race director, has been accumulating know-how on the management side and spreading understanding by increasing awareness since it was founded 10 years ago. Based on this, "((London marathonOf the goalBuckingham PalaceWhere you can seeNew York City MarathonOf the goalCentral ParkChanged to a place suitable for the face of Tokyo. "[21]..However, in reality, the goal disappeared due to the expansion of the floor space at Tokyo Big Sight, which was the original goal point.I was forced to change the course.
