Kanazawa Marathon 2023 – Call for participants! 

Kanazawa Marathon is a marathon that takes you around the historic castle town of Kanazawa.  

This year, for the first time in four years, we can welcome back overseas participants! 

Entries are open from Wednesday, 15 March, to Wednesday, 31 May (Japan time). 

Capacity is limited to 1,000 runners (first-come-first-served basis). 

A total of 5,418 people living outside Japan participated in the Kanazawa Marathon. 

The Kanazawa Marathon boasts a circular course that runs along some of the many attractions of Kanazawa. With representative sights dotted along its course, such as the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art Kanazawa, Kenrokuen Garden, Kanazawa Castle, and the Tsuzumi-mon Gate at Kanazawa Station, to name a few, participants can enjoy the wonderful scenery of Kanazawa as they run. 

The six lunch stations you will encounter on the course also introduce the culinary culture that Kanazawa and Ishikawa have to offer, from Japanese sweets to Kanazawa curry. 

We look forward to your participation!
