Maratona de Tóquio 2019

April 3, 2019 - Espera-se que participem na Maratona de Tóquio mais de 36.000 atletas. O percurso foi revisto em 2017 para colocar o final da corrida em frente ao Palácio Imperial, e tanto a prova masculina como feminina deram novos recordes nesse ano.

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.
