April 3, 2019 -- Mehr als 36.000 Läufer werden am Tokio Marathon teilnehmen. Die Strecke wurde 2017 geändert, das Ziel ist jetzt vor dem Kaiserlichen Palast, auch erzielten sowohl Männer wie Frauen neue Rekorde in diesem Jahr.

Two-time Olympic champion Kenenisa Bekele heads the men’s field in Tokyo -- his personal best of 2:03:03, the third fastest marathon in history, was recorded on the original course. The Ethiopian will face tough competition from long-term rival Dickson Chumba of Kenya, the reigning Tokyo champion.

Expectations are high for a record-breaking pace in the women’s race. Ethiopian rising star Ruti Aga, who recorded a personal best of 2:18:34 in Berlin last September, heads the field, with Kenya’s Florence Kiplagat providing fast opposition.

Tokyo was promoted in 2013 to become one of the six World Marathon Majors, joining the lineup of London, Boston, Berlin, Chicago and New York.

World Marathon Majors 2019:
Mar 3 Tokyo, Japan
Apr 15 Boston, U.S.
Apr 28 London, UK
Sep 29 Berlin, Germany
Oct 13 Chicago, U.S.
Nov 3 New York, U.S.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
