Before You Go

Things you need to know


Q. What happens if the race is cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak? 
The exact option available will depend largely on the race organiser and refunds can be offered only if we receive the same from the event company. We may retain a small administrative fee to cover our expenses. Unless there is a special policy update from the race organisers it is understood that normal cancellation terms as per our cancellation policy will apply.  

Q: Can I book extra nights before or after the race?
A: Yes, please get in touch with us and we will be happy to book the extra nights for you. Although our Tokyo Marathon 2023 tour starts from Friday, we do recommend that runners arrive on Thursday as it gives you time to adjust to a new city. We also offer customised extensions if you want to add a holiday post the race.

A. Yes, all of our Abbott World Marathon Majors packages sold by Active Holiday Company come with guaranteed race entry.

Q: Will I have to collect my own bib?
A: Yes, all the Abbott World Marathon Majors require that the participants attend the expo in person and collect their bibs. Your travel documents will contain detailed instructions on how to get to and from the expo from your hotel. 

Q: How far is the hotel from the start/finish line?

Q: I am a single traveller, is it possible for me to get a twin share room?
A: We have several single travellers interested in sharing a room with another traveller and, wherever possible, we try to pair up people who have requested rooms on twin share. However, please keep in mind that this is not a guarantee and in some cases, you might be required to take a single supplement.

Q: Is it possible for me to buy just the race entry and make my own accommodation arrangements?
A:  As Tour Operators, we are required to sell the race entry along with accommodation. It will not be possible to buy just the race entry.

A. Yes, it is possible for us to organise accommodation for you if you already have the entry or if you are travelling with a non-running companion. However, please note that this will be at the same hotel as the rest of the group travelling on our package. 

Q: I am taking the race package through Active Holiday Company, is it possible for me to upgrade my accommodation?
A: No, it is not. We plan it such that we have the whole group staying together at a single hotel so it will not be possible to upgrade hotels since you are part of a group booking. You may, however, request an upgrade in the room type at the same hotel. 

Q. I cannot attend this race. Is it possible for me to transfer my registration to another runner?
A. Tokyo Marathon 2022 does not allow runners to transfer their spots to another runner or to extend to another year. If you do not run the race as registered you lose your entry.

    Dreams are made!

    My Six star journey wouldn’t have been possible without Active Holiday company.
    My journey with this company started with Berlin in 2018, then came London 2019 and then Tokyo in 2020 , which finally completed on March 5th 2023 with a Six star finish.
    Active holidays had given the best experience of an international event , the stay was well planned close to either start or finish and Gauri took care of every runner and was so energetic and full of life. Missed her in this trip.

    The ah-ha moment on the trip

    Holding the Six Star Medal after a wait of 3 years!
