Marathons and Races

While waiting for the next Loop Relay, you can earn miles for charity by signing up to the Charity Miles app at NO cost to you.

Join the RIJ team on Charity Miles

Charity Miles is a free app that donates 25 cents to charity for every mile you run or walk.

We need your support on our team to become a Charity Partner on this app.

Right now we only have an RIJ team, which means you will have to join our team but support another charity while you exercise. The more people who join our team, the fester we can become a charity of choice on the app.

Join our team NOW and keep using it!

Palace Loop Relay - Sunday 24 April 2016

There were 10 teams competing in perfect running weather. The winners completed 7 loops in just over 2 hours. Congratulations to Team Mark!

The challenge is still open to beat Latham and Watkins’ great fund-raising in November 2013.

On Sunday 17 November 2013 teams battled for the championship in the Palace Loop Relay.
A very special thanks to the Relay’s other champion, Latham & Watkins, for raising the most money from sponsors.

The 200,000 yen raised by the Latham & Watkins team will go a long way to help support refugees around the world. Thank you Latham & Watkins!


Remember your support can go a long way to improving life for refugee families:

¥100 for a 4kg bag of seeds

¥350 for a mosquito net

¥1,000 for a water sterilizer

¥2,000 for a mother and baby kit

¥4,000 for a complete set of school books
