Story & Recommendation
16,000 people run in Kyoto! A big marathon event
Kyoto Marathon started in 2012, and is held annually. 16,000 runners take part in the event, while 15,000 volunteers and staff support the event from behind the scenes. As you can see, it is a really big event. The runners aim to complete the course within the six hour time limit. The marathon course is lined with 7 world heritage sites, beautiful views, and sightseeing spots, so you can enjoy everything Kyoto has to offer while you run. Besides the marathon there is an ekiden relay for two runners, and a wheelchair race. As this marathon is held in the world-famous sightseeing city of Kyoto, over 2,000 participants come from overseas. The application period starts in summer and when applications exceed the fixed number a lottery system will take place. So if you are planning to come to Kyoto in February, how about applying?
