© TOKYO MARATHON

The Tokyo Marathon 2011 is possibly the best-organized marathon in the world. Although few non-Japanese have participated until now, foreign runners are particularly welcome and everything about the Tokyo Marathon is made easy for them. Numerous staff are on hand to help guide runners through the pre-race registration process at the modernistic "Tokyo Big Sight" exhibition area. And during the race itself, everything along the route is clean and well-organized. Because the start and finish places are far apart, a fleet of trucks is on hand to transfer runners' belongings to the finish.
 
The race on 27th February 2011 starts in the Shinjuku area outside the the Tokyo Metropolitan Government buildings and ends at the "Tokyo Big Sight" exhibition centre on the other side of the city.
The Tokyo Marathon 2011 doubles as The 95th National Men's Marathon Championship, doubles as Japanese Men's National Team Selection Race for The 13th IAAF World Championships in Athletics
