The "Tokyo Marathon":http://distancerunning.co.uk/races/660.html has announced a pre-registration system for volunteers. Starting with Tokyo Marathon 2017, only those who have registered in advance will be able to apply to be volunteers. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of positions available, volunteers will be selected by lottery. This replaces the previous first-come-first-served approach. The volunteers supporting the marathon operation serve as a symbol of Tokyo Marathon’s hospitality.

The marathon is limited to 35,500 runners. The provisional course goes from the Tokyo metropolitan government building, passing Nihombashi, Ryogoku and Takanawa to finish at Tokyo Station/Gyoko-dori.

The race is scheduled to take place on 26 February 2017. The Tokyo Marathon also serves as the selection race for the Japanese contenders for the Men’s Marathon in the 16th IAAF World Championships.
