Running in Tokyo/Japan - Marathon/Clubs/Track Races


Saiko Eco 5k


For beginners and fun-runners!

~thinking about what runners can do about the environment~

Unfortunately, some of the processed foods we consume everyday contain excessive amounts of

additives, which on the long term are not necessarily good for our health. Also, excessive wrapping&packaging, consuming our precious finite resources, has become an everyday scene. So, for the sake of us and our future generations, let’s start thinking about an environmentally conscious way of living. In this running event, we will be presenting ideas for an environmentally conscious, healthy diet oriented way of living.

This eco-run concept was inspired by Juergen Wittstock, a veteran-runner and long-term Tokyo resident originally from Frankfurt, Germany, as well as the CEO of HIkIkI organic label.
