Run Tokyo Virtual
The 4 x 4 challenge can be completed in a team of 4 or on your own. You need to complete 6.36 miles (10.54 km) 4 times in a month to complete this individually. In a team, you are splitting the burden amongst friends or work colleagues. As a team, you must complete 6.36 miles (10.54 km) each, on the same day to record an official time (we do accept times on different days for your medals but your times will be recorded as unofficial on the leader boards). By submitting your 4 x 6.36 miles (10.54 km), you will amass your marathon distance and the runners portal will calculate your marathon time. Once this is done you will be rewarded with your Run Tokyo Gold medal/medals.
You can also split the distance up in one of the following ways:
- 26.1 miles as a individual
- 13.1 miles in a pair (13.1 Miles per person)
- 10.54 miles in a team of 4 (10.54 Km per person)
- 5.27Km in a team of 8 (5.27Km per person)
- 2.62 miles in a team of 10 (2.62miles per person)
- 1.048 miles in a team of 25 (1.048 miles per person)
Once this is done you will be rewarded with your Run Tokyo Gold medal/medals.
14+ or 5 and over if accompanied by an adult
Official Times –To submit an official time you must use Garmin Connect, Strava, Map My Run, Nike App or any GPS tracking device. Take a picture of your tracker and submit via your online console

Run Tokyo Special Challenge
The Run Tokyo special challenge is one of our toughest special challenges and is why Tokyo has been classed as a Gold medal event. The Tokyo Marathon changed from two separate marathons in 2007 to the Tokyo International Marathon that took place on even years, and the Tokyo – New York Friendship International Marathon that took place on odd years. Out of respect for the coming together of these two great events, you will need to complete 2 marathon distances in one month as part of this special challenge. Your combined marathon times for an individual will need to come in under 8 hours combined. Completing this challenge is not required to obtain your Run Tokyo Gold medal.
Rewards and Prizes
Find yourself in the top 5 on the leader board and earn yourself rewards and prizes from our partners at RunThrough Kit. Make sure to keep an eye on where you rank so you can re-enter if you are knocked out of the top 5. Once you have signed up as well as our leaderboard we will have special challenges with prizes, for this event the special challenge.
