The Kyoto Marathon 2019 has come to a close.

Our most sincere thanks to everyone for their generous cooperation in the 2019 Kyoto Marathon!

We would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation with the “no-private-car” policy and the long hours of traffic control on the day of the Marathon.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude and thanks for the support extended by numerous people, including those who warmly cheered on the runners from the roadside and volunteers who helped with the event, as well as members of the competent authorities.

We hope that the Kyoto Marathon will gain enduring popularity as a “new festival created by the citizens” alongside Kyoto’s three great festivals—the Aoi, Gion, and Jidai Matsuri. Your continued understanding and support will be most appreciated.
