about the race

Looking for a casual park run event without too much competition? Need a little bit of a push but don’t want to run with thousands of runners? The Nagoya Smile Marathon is a monthly casual park run taking place at Shonai Ryokuchi Park in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture. Beginners will enjoy a flat and scenic course around the park while more seasoned runners have a great opportunity to obtain a PR. 

Before registering, it is important to know the following about the Nagoya Smile Marathon:
・Course involves several loops around Shonai Ryokuchi Park, e.g. 2 laps for 5KM, 4 laps for 10KM
・Water stations will be available after each loop
・Finishing time will not be recorded or made available online
・The event is very small and local with 100 to 300 runners each month – most participants treat this event as a training day (rather than a race)
・Samurai Sports staff will not be at the Nagoya Smile Marathon on the day of the event
