Quick facts about Kyoto Marathon 2018
The course starts at Nishikyogoku Athletic Park and finishes at a point near Heian-jingu Shrine. Passing by seven UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites, runners can fully enjoy the attractions of Kyoto's picturesque scenery, including spectacular views of the five mountains on which huge bonfires are lit during the Gozan no Okuribi summer festival. The course also includes a "downtown" route, which was incorporated into the 2015 event in response to contestant requests for the race to pass by Kyoto Gyoen National Garden (Imperial Palace) and Kyoto City Hall, and a route through the Kyoto Botanical Garden.
