Only a month away from the Tokyo Marathon race date Tokyo is still under a state of emergency.

Given the difficulty of forecasting the trend of COVID-19 and related restrictions on mobility the Tokyo Marathon Board of Directors has decided that the Tokyo Marathon 2021 (originally scheduled for Sunday 17 October) will be postponed to Sunday 6 March 2022.

All related events (Tokyo Marathon EXPO 2021, Tokyo Marathon Friendship Run 2021, Tokyo Marathon Family Run 2021) will be re-scheduled too take place in March 2022.

Alongside this decision it was also decided that the Tokyo Marathon 2022, expected to be held on 6 March 2022, will not take place. For all runners who have an entry to the Tokyo Marathon 2022, will be contacted with details and options soon.
