This race is staged on the sunny main streets of Shibuya and Omotesando!
Main streets that are normally crowded with people and cars like Koen Dori and Omotesando, are closed just for the race. The first half of the course through hilly Shibuya has a lot of ups and downs that make it challenging, but if you practice properly itâll be no problem! Even beginners will have plenty of fun.
This is the only day of the year that Meiji Shrine is open to runners!
Meiji Shrine is a green oasis in the center of the metropolis of Tokyo. Running through the hustle and bustle of the big city, you can experience the very peaceful quiet side of Tokyo. Youâll experience the bliss of running through this power spot in the fresh morning air, a special privilege Meiji Shrine grants only to this important race.
