Graphic News

February 25, 2018 -- The Tokyo Marathon takes place, with over 36,000 runners expected to participate on the second running of the course that produced new records in both the men’s and women’s races in 2017.

Wilson Kipsang of Kenya will aim to defend his title against fellow countryman Dickson Chumba, while Ethiopians Tesfaye Abera and Feyisa Lilesa will also provide tough opposition. In the women’s race, Ruti Aga, with a personal best time of 2:20:41, heads the field against Ethiopian teammate Berhane Dibaba, who is competing in Tokyo for the fifth successive year.

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 2018:
Feb 25 Tokyo, Japan
Apr 16 Boston, U.S.
Apr 22 London, UK
Sep 16 Berlin, Germany
Oct 7 Chicago, U.S.
Nov 4 New York, U.S.

21 days to go until 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 days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
