We regret to announce that the physical Kyoto Marathon 2022, formerly scheduled to be held on 20 February 2022 (Sunday), has been cancelled due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation at this moment. The decision has been made to protect the health and safety of runners, volunteers, staff, and citizens, and not to put any further load on healthcare personnel who support the race.
However, we are instead going to hold “Online Kyoto Marathon 2022 supported by OMRON・WACOAL” in spite of the difficult circumstances, so as to ensure the continuity of this event in the future. Runners can participate anytime and anywhere during a stipulated period via registering using a smartphone app.
It would be our great pleasure for you to enjoy our online marathon in your place, just like you are running in Kyoto. Let’s get together online with one heart, looking forward to running together in near future in Kyoto!
We are looking forward to welcome you in Kyoto soon and support you running up your 42.195km race here once the pandemic situation stabilizes.

In addition, the Kyoto Marathon is facing difficulties due to the impact of COVID-19 and financial limitations. Therefore, we are accepting donations from people in Japan and overseas, in order to allocate funds for the continuation and further development of attractive events and hospitality unique to Kyoto. We would like to ask for the warm support of many people who love Kyoto.
