Run Santa Run

2015 December 5 (Saturday)

Minato-ku, Tokyo

Want to keep fit this Christmas?! Run, Jog or Walk the Run Santa Run with us!

Put runners in fancy dress and suddenly a run in Tokyo becomes 100 times more fun! The Tokyo Run Santa Run is Tokyo Gaijin’s and Swim Bike Run Japan’s brand new festive fun run! Ditch the sleigh and dash away on a 7k route in one of the capital’s favorite Xmas illumination areas before relaxing afterwards with mulled wine.

This is a great event for teams, so why not get the whole family involved or ask friends and colleagues to join you? No previous experience is required for this fantastically festive day and with a bit of training the 7km distance should easily be within your capabilities. The spirit of the event is 'taking part' not 'winning' so you can run, jog or walk - you decide! As you can feel the satisfaction of completing this challenge and maintain a trim physique, despite the Christmas snacks and feasting! Simply register online, turn up on the day, collect your Santa outfit and tackle the 7km run. If you've ever fancied a fun run through Tokyo whilst dressed as Father Christmas (and let's face it, who hasn't?) then this is the one for you.
