Sister City Program - Orlando, FL & Urayasu, Japan

Our Sister City exchange program with Urayasu began in 1989 to promote cultural understanding and stimulate economic development. The program aims to help residents and businesses exchange ideas related to education, science, culture, commerce and tourism. In 1996, the Orlando Runners Club entered into a Sister Club Affiliation Agreement with the Urayasu Runner’s Club to strengthen the ties of friendship, and to contribute to deeper understanding and broader friendship between the American and Japanese people.

Each year the Orlando Runners Club selects up to four runners to participate in the Tokyo Bay Urayasu City (Half) Marathon, touring historical and educational sites, having tea with the mayor and are honored guests at the race itself and at the annual Urayasu Runners Club banquet. Two nights are spent at the home of a Japanese family to promote cultural exchange and friendship with our sister Club. In return, up to four runners from Japan are similarly hosted here by the Orlando Runners Club in December for the OUC Orlando Half Marathon. The Japanese runners spend several days sightseeing in Central Florida, and they are the honored guests at Orlando Runners Club’s annual Christmas party. For more information, please
