As part of an epic running series featuring the all new PUMA IGNITE shoes, Japanese runners marked the first stop with #IGNITETokyo.

Five runners ran five 5k races in five cities. Do we have your attention yet? To demonstrate the maximum energy return and durability of PUMA IGNITE, they did it all in 24 hours.


Starting in Tokyo, the runners took off to Kyoto, the first stop of their run. After a quick warm-up at the Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine in Kyoto, they raced through the city, logging their first 5k, before hopping back on the high-speed train.

Next up? The tea fields of Shizouka with Mount Fuji looming in the distance. A race through the cityscapes of Nagoya followed, and their final stop before heading back to Tokyo was the uphill park trails to the castle in Hamamatsu.

One last high-speed train ride dropped them back off where they began in Tokyo. Winding through tight streets and trafficked intersections, they made their way to a celebratory finish in Shibuya Crossing.

That’s how you #IGNITETokyo. Follow the IGNITE journey as it makes its way to ten cities around the world this year. How will you IGNITE your city?
