The Ehime Marathon

A very popular citizen’s marathon in Matsuyama

The Ehime Marathon is held every year in early February. Eight thousand people register in a matter of hours to run the course through central Matsuyama and its suburbs, ending in the pleasant grounds of Matsuyama Castle. Celebrity runners take part, including Japan’s Olympic marathon medalists, and many people run in fancy dress. The event has a very festive atmosphere.
