In pictures: The rain, the pain and the fun of Tokyo Marathon 2019


Low temperatures and persistent rain put a slight damper on the celebratory aspect of the 13th Tokyo Marathon but at least it didn’t harm the runners’ overall performances.


The winner — Ethiopia’s Birhanu Legese — clocked the event’s second-best time ever , and a record number of runners — 38,000 — finished the course.


Here’s a selection of those athletes, doing their best to make it to the finish line.


As always, a large number went the extra mile with cosplay.


And you’re never too old to run a marathon or put a silly hat on.
