2024 Japan Marathon Calendar

Running is a popular sport in Japan and the country hosts more than 100 marathons each year. You may know the big ones, such as Tokyo Marathon and Osaka Marathon, but there are many more across the country. If you’re planning to visit Japan in 2024, and are thinking about running a marathon while you’re there, you’ve come to the right place.

Below is a list of Japan’s marathons in 2024. All of them host full 26.2-mile marathons, and some also offer half, 10K, and other distances. As you can see, February and March, as well as November and December, are quite busy due to favorable weather conditions, but you can pretty much find a race throughout the year.

Note that some of these races are intended for locals, and their official websites are in Japanese only. So you may need to rely on your browser’s translation function to lean more.
