List of Races in Okinawa


Here are all the major races open to the general public in Okinawa Prefecture, listed in chronological order. I have also listed a handful of races that take place in the Ryukyu Islands but that are in Kagoshima Prefecture. Click on the name of the race to go to the official English home page, if available. (Note that many of the smaller races do not provide any information in English. If you don't know any Japanese, try navigating by pasting the webpage address into
Google Translate.) Please drop me a line if you know of any races that aren't listed--or if you notice any mistakes. Refer to My Race History for additional information and commentaries on races that I've finished (those marked DONE), or refer to individual pages for information on marathons. For additional information about finding races or registering on-line, refer to my Links and Information page.
