Why do you prohibit running in costumes?


Since Kyoto Marathon’s course includes narrow strips, giving priority to ensuring that 16,000 runners will be able to run safely, running in any kind of costume is prohibited in the Kyoto Marathon. Also, runners will not be allowed to wear and/or display any designs, trademarks, etc. that indicate the names of companies or products for advertising purposes at the event venue (including on the course).
Once again, we will offer race bibs with nicknames for use in this event. We hope you will enjoy taking part in the marathon wearing one of these race bibs.
