Nagoya Women’s Marathon


Nagoya Women’s Marathon is sponsored by Tiffany & Co. which makes the race sparkle for all the right reasons. It has claimed the title of the biggest women’s marathon in the world.


Entry prices usually start at ¥17,000 (2024 price). A little high, but that does get you a Tiffany pendant at the end of it (man in tuxedo not included). Entry dates vary but are usually from August to November and may extend into December, depending on the number of applications.


The race starts and finishes at Vantelin Dome Nagoya but it also hits the main sights of Nagoya, such as Nagoya Castle.
