Tokyo marathon postponed to March 2022

Japan has seen the number of infections decline following a record spike last month, which prompted the government to expand and extended virus restrictions, despite the national vaccination programme ramping up.
The race, originally set to take place earlier this year in March with around 38,000 runners including top athletes participating, had already been postponed to October.
The postponement comes after Formula 1 announced in August the cancellation of October's Japanese Grand Prix for a second year due to the pandemic.
