Here’s your chance to run in the spirit of Dragon Ball with fellow fans this September!
This should be welcome news for Dragon Ball fans looking for some healthy fun! Japanese anime production company Toei recently announced that the very first Dragon Ball fun run will be held in two locations this year in September.
The two events will take place at Chiba’s Makuhari Kaihin Park (near Tokyo) on September 10 and Aichi Rinku Beach (near Nagoya) on September 23. Participants in the event will be running a roughly three-kilometer (just under two-mile) course and will receive a special T-shirt based on Goku’s trademark orange outfit.
But that’s not all! The event will include opportunities to take simulated “augmented reality” pictures with Dragon Ball characters as well as promotional activities in which participants can collect the seven magical Dragon Balls to receive a special limited edition gift item. And to add further to the festivities, there will also be Dragon Ball voice actors and singers present at the event, so there should be plenty of fun for Dragon Ball fans of all ages, both kids and adults!
They will be taking entries for the event starting July 3, and tickets will cost 6,800 yen (US$61) for adults and 3,800 yen (US$34) for children. There will also be special parent-child tickets available for 9,800 yen.
The run event organizers have also announced that they are hoping to bring the event to other cities in Japan as well as overseas locations, so if you’re a fan, you may want to stay tuned, as the Dragon Ball Run might come to a venue near you!
