Nagano Marathon
Sun 18 April 2021


The 23rd Nagano Marathon will go ahead as scheduled on 18 April 2021, employing trial coronavirus countermeasures, writes the Nagano Marathon Organizing Committee.

To comply with government directives on crowd density the field will be limited to 8000 participants. First-come first-served priority will be given to runners who entered the cancelled 22nd edition of the race. All entrants are asked to monitor their health closely and to stay home if they feel unwell in the time leading up to the race. This event cannot be held without the help and cooperation of every participant in the field in making sure it goes off smoothly. Thank you for your understanding.

We are sorry to inform you that the Nagano Marathon Organizing Committee will not accept foreign entries for the 23rd Nagano Marathon, considering that the future for the relaxation of immigration restrictions is uncertain due to COVID-19. We sincerely apologize to those who were looking forward to the race. Priority entry for foreign runners entered in the 22nd Nagano Marathon’s priority will be carried forward to the 24th Nagano Marathon.
