On your mark ... get set ... catch your flight!

Tokyo's Narita International Airport, which will welcome the world during the 2020 Olympics, has equipped its new terminal with a running track.

According to design firm PARTY, the color-coded and symbol-stenciled track is a low-cost alternative to automated walkways and illuminated signage.

Perhaps the design will help inspire the next generation of Olympic track and field stars.

Hey, have a passport, have a dream.

The terminal opened April 8.

See more pictures and video below. (The segment about the running track begins at the 1:32 mark.)
