TELL 5k & 10k
Held during the Golden Week holiday period when Tokyo is relatively quiet, the TELL race is a fun and relaxed event offering great prizes and benefits a worthy charity, Tokyo English Life Line. About 350 people participate in each race. The course is the loop around the Imperial Palace starting from Chidorigafuchi Park near Hanzomon Station, and is _exactly_ 5K/10K. FLASH: 2009 race may have different starting point. Watch this space.
The top ten men and women in each race get EXTREMELY GOOD prizes and additional prizes are given away through a lottery. There is also a 5k walk, making this event great for families. Entry until mid-April, but same-day entry available for a slightly higher fee. Check the Namban website calendar.
When: First Saturday in May
Where: Around the Imperial Palace
