The Aim of Nagano Marathon
"The Nagano Olympic Commemorative Nagano Marathon" reminds us of the inspiration of the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympic Games, keeping the excitement ringing in our hearts, and contributing to the development of regional sports, culture and the Olympic Movement. It also aims to promote marathons by providing an occasion for amateurs and the world's top athletes to run together, expanding the number of aficionados of running.

The course (42.195 km) is called "Nagano Olympic Memorial Course". Participants run along some excellent facilities that were used during the Nagano Olympics in 1998. At last, runners will finish the race at "Olympic Memorial Stadium".
