Nagoya announces event plan

Nagoya Women’s Marathon
Sun 12 March 2023

The Nagoya Women’s Marathon is delighted to announce the event outline of the Nagoya Women’s Marathon 2023. It plans to hold the world’s largest women’s running festival on Sunday, March 12, 2023, hosting 22,000 participants, including 3,500 international entries.

Launched in 2012, the Nagoya Women’s Marathon is the largest women’s marathon in the world, certified by Guinness World Records, and the only women’s race with a World Athletics Platinum Label status. Since 2022, the race has offered the largest first prize money in world marathon running at US$250,000.

Every finisher will receive a beautiful, specially designed pendant from a global luxury jeweler, Tiffany & Co., as a memento of their achievement.

Even during the Covid-19 pandemic, the race was held every year by downsizing the number of entries and taking all possible measures against infection, providing the grand stage for women runners to take on the challenge of 42.195 km and radiate the positive energy through the sport. The Nagoya Women’s Marathon 2023 will be back in its original field size.

The Nagoya Women’s Marathon is a unique and special occasion for all women who love running, from the world’s top female athletes to fun runners and first-time marathoners. For more information on the Nagoya Women’s Marathon 2023 and the race entry, please visit the official race website .
