About 30,000 typically participate in the Yokohama Marathon. Runners will have the option of the full marathon or a “1/7” 6km short course (competitors in wheelchairs will also have the option of a 2km course). About 500 places are normally reserved for international entrants.

How Do I Apply?

Lawson handles applications for all entries other than international. For international entry see the JTB Sports Station website.

What are My Chances of Securing a Place?

As with all major marathons, general entry is via ballot. You’ve got about a 30% chance in the general ballot for the full marathon and just over 10% for the 1/7 short course. However, if you’re applying for the charity or international entry (which is presumably the case if you’re reading this), then places are given on a first-come-first-served basis. Once the 500 reserved places are full, applicants are automatically entered into the general ballot.
