Last week we brought you Benn Harradine’s vision of an athletics meet in an airport hangar. What better way to follow it up than by giving you a running track in an airport?! Take a bow, Japan!

It might still be five years before the Tokyo Olympics kick off, but by the looks of things the city has already started going mad for track. Images of Narita International Airport’s new Terminal 3 building emerged last week, with the running track design causing a clamour across social media.

It is the vision of Japanese creative lab PARTY, who worked alongside Muji and Nikken to bring the project to life. As well as looking pretty darn cool, the colour-coded tracks direct travellers through the airport easily and comfortably – blue track for departures, red for arrivals.

On your marks... get set... board! (Sorry.)
