Ishigaki Island Marathon

Full marathon, half marathon, and 10km courses available

Venue: Ishigaki Central Sports Park Athletic Field When: Late Jan 2025

Held in January each year, the Ishigaki Island Marathon serves several purposes. Naturally, there's the component that challenges the stamina and endurance of the participants, but the event is also designed to help promote sports tourism to this beautiful part of Japan.

The lineup includes not only a full marathon course (42.195km), but a half marathon (21km) and 10 kilometer routes as well, so don't be deterred if you're not quite at full marathon capacity just yet!

Applications for the event can be submitted between September 1st and October 31st, with more details to be posted on the official event website closer to the date.

Getting there

The Ishigaki Island Marathon course starts from the Ishigaki Central Sports Park Athletic Field, which is located approximately 20 minutes by car from the Ishigaki Airport area. On-site parking is available, but anticipate that it will fill up quickly on the morning of the event.
