Tokyo Airport Running Track Gets Rat Race Ready For 2020 Olympics

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.)
