About Charity Runner entries
To become a world-class event that can contribute to the society through the power of sports, Tokyo Marathon has been implementing its own charity program, �"TSUNAGU," since Tokyo Marathon 2011. We are now exited to welcome more people to join our Tokyo Marathon 2014 Charity �"TSUNAGU", by simply donating or participating as charity runners*.

*Charity Runners: Among individuals donating ¥100,000 or more, those who wish to participate in the marathon can do so as charity runners for a particular charitable activity (full marathon only; up to 3,000 runners on a first-come, first-served basis).
