Athletics Far East (AFE) is a running crew based in Tokyo, Japan that was founded with the vision of pursuing a running-based lifestyle, inspired by the legendary track and field club “Athletics West” that was founded in the US in 1977. AFE brings together a community of individuals from different walks of life, including a brand director, a model, a martial art fighter, a graphic designer, a photographer, and office workers. Each member runs for different reasons: to improve themselves, enhance their physical beauty, get stronger, foster creativity, or simply to enjoy the changing seasons.
A Diverse Community of Runners with Different Goals
Despite their different goals, what unites AFE members is their love for running and the sense of community they experience while running together. By running together, they discover new things, form new connections, and support each other. AFE is more than just a running crew; it’s a community of like-minded individuals who support each other and grow together.
