Chiba Aqualine Marathon 2016

A race in Chiba which will be held on Oct 23, 2016 caught my attention recently.
Interesting fact about the Chiba Aqualine Marathon is that runners will run on runs on the bridge expressway over Tokyo Bay which connects Chiba and Kanagawa prefecture.

The highlight of the event is the beautiful scenery enjoyed over the bridge, big panorama of blue ocean and sky in the fine season of autumn.

And Chiba Aqualine Marathon offers not only the marathon (42.195km) distance but also the half-marathon and wheelchair half-marathon too. 
Applications will be accepted online from Tuesday, April 5 at 12:00PM to Tuesday, April 26 at 5:00PM. Although the slots for foreign runners are limited, almost 100% can be accepted on special quotas for us and not go through the ballot system.

Full marathon total participants are capped at 12,000 runners and half-marathon (plus the HM for wheelchair) is at 5,000.

However, it is a first-come, first-serve basis so do register early if you want to join the marathon.
