Tokyo Marathon Guarantees Places Next Year for Chinese Entrants Unable to Run This Year Due to Coronavirus
Residents of China who were accepted into this year's Tokyo Marathon but are unable to do athlete check-in at the race expo or who are otherwise involuntarily unable to participate will be given places at next year's race regardless of nationality. Entry fees and charitable donations made for this year's race will not be refunded, and any entrants who wish to run next year will be required to pay the entry fees again. About 1800 runners living in China run the Tokyo Marathon every year.
