The Nagoya Women’s Marathon is an elite race known as a qualifying trial for the Olympics and the World Championships. The course is also popular for being wide and mostly flat, which makes it easy to run and break records. While the race still serves as a world-leading competition among elite athletes, its time limit is set to be 7 hours long, so that even beginners can easily complete it!

4) Malaysia Women Marathon 2019

This year Malaysia Women Marathon 2019 teamed up with one of Malaysia’s highly regarded artist Habsah Abang Saufi to encapsulate the theme an “Ode to Women”. We recreated her painting from a series of her work called “Wanita” and used it onto for our event t-shirt. This dedication is wonderfully apt for a women’s event such as ours as we hope that this theme will recollect our stand towards an issue that we are proud to be associated with, Gender Equality.
