Runner raises runners of the whole country from Hokkaido to Miyazaki in wide age group from high school student to 80 generations. Magnification of inhabitant of a ward precedent lottery of October seemed to close about 3 times, the later general application in 45 minutes. Height of popularity is indicated.

It is once-in-a-lifetime chance seen in front in the first of the season of the first runner.


After having seen off runners at start point, in usual, Mari Tanigawa starts running last.

"It is very openhearted person, but lets you do it overtakes with the speed as there cannot be, running while calling out to runner when we shake hands and accept photography. Please look at the cool first of the season!" (inhabitant of a ward runner of every year participation)


We pay attention to runners pleasing eyes by various costume plays in usual!

Recommended watching games spot this and that

Another characteristic of this meeting continuing without support of roadside almost breaking off.
"Recommended watching games point as there are many voices called where", let's introduce local little-known spot spot that is not known very much or watching games spot that can take flower and runner.

①Start point


Start from the baseball field side in Hikarigaoka Park is 8:00 a.m. Scene that 5,000 people start running with signal gun all at once is the best part. Until all the members run through start gate, nearly ten minutes. We see and meet and are outstanding!


②Pedestrian bridge in front of Hikarigaoka Station

After having left Hikarigaoka Park, there is the turning point in main street in front of Hikarigaoka Station. To look down at scene that the station square is filled up with runner exhaustively, watching games point that is perfect the top of pedestrian bridge "viewing the moon Ohashi" of the station square. As it is point of around 3km from start, runner is still gathered up and is view of the best part!

After all, it is cherry blossoms! "Cover bridge" introduced from Hikarigaoka Station to Hikarigaoka Park is recommended to person called this. We can watch a game of runner over cherry blossoms (photograph).

In addition, in around the 17 kilos point, the tennis court depths of "summer cloud park" cherry blossoms spot of little-known spot! It is response perfect score that hot encouragement is transmitted through runner running through tunnel of cherry blossoms directly in being seen in front♪

④Main highways

People who cheer roadside of main highways such as Sasame-dori St., Mejiro-dori St., the Circular Route 8, Kawagoe Street which cannot run do not seem to usually break off. Finished…When we were almost discouraged, this was helped many times by hot encouragement.
