For those planning their vacation in Tokyo or its neighbouring area in mid-December 2016, there's a private charity running event that will held at the Imperial Palace jogging course on Dec 18th, 2016.
Registration is still open for foreign participants and from what I read on the website https://moshicom.com/3494/, it will be open for registration until race day. (Correct me if I'm wrong).
The categories available for registration:
5K (Men & Women) 2,100 yen registration fee
15K (Men & Women) 2,100 yen registration fee
5K+15K (Men & Women) 3,200 yen registration fee
Participants will receive certificate of completion and as the Imperial Palace route is a 5K route, looping around the route are self-counted. No frills lah.
The estimated runners to be joining will be around 100-499 participants.
It's a chance to run, meet other runners and enjoy the feeling of a race while also be a part in contributing to a worthwhile charity.
This is a charity run and part of the registration fee will be donated to PLAN International Japan, an independent child rights and humanitarian organisation committed to children living a life free of poverty, violence and injustice.
