What is the Osaka Marathon?

The Osaka Marathon is one of Japan’s largest urban-type civic marathons in which 32,000 runners participate from home and abroad, racing through a course filled with the main attractions of Osaka.
With the new course starting this year, you can enjoy new sights including historical landmarks of Osaka.
The warm hospitality of 10,000 volunteers and cheerings from over 1.3 million spectators on the sidelines all help to boost this major event.

It also aims to disseminate a charity culture by providing a number of people with opportunities to participate in charity activities under the slogan:“Making a Rainbow Together”.
