The Tokyo Marathon "the Day We Unite", celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2016. There are approximately 37,000 runners from all over the world, and 1.5 million spectators along the street. In addition, the efforts of each and every one of 10,000 volunteers, proudly supporting the event, were of tremendous assistance and helping ensure that the marathon went safely nd smoothly.
The “VOLUNTAINER” Tokyo Marathon Foundation Official Volunteer Club was established out of a desire to help these volunteers achieve even more, and to enable people without previous experience to experience the joy of being a sports volunteer.
