The Embassy of Japan in Greece, with the kind support of M/MARITIME, is organizing a Virtual Running Event entitled “Run for Tokyo 2020”, on the occasion of the celebration of the biggest sporting event in the world, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and motivates people to run and cheer on all athletes participating in the Games who, due to the current pandemic crisis, will not be able to compete in full stadiums.

Registration is free.

Participants can select the distance (5km or 10km) indicated in the registration form at any place, on any day, at any time, from the 9th July to the 5th September 2021 and will have the opportunity to run their specified distance one or more times, improving their time, which will lead to a promotion in the ranking of the results of the race. After completing their course, they will have the opportunity to choose to receive a commemorative medal with the logo of the Run For Tokyo.

All participants will receive a digital commemorative diploma for participating in the events of the Olympic Day June 23. (The event is part of the International Olympic Committee’s celebrations for the Olympic Day June 23)

Let show our support to all the athletes around the world and wish them good luck!
