What is the Nordic Marathon?

img_intro01 Nordic Walking, born in Scandinavia, is an easy and effective fitness sport for everyone. In this tournament, we aim at 21km level crossing by Nordic walking.

In late October, Iizuna Toho Plateau is the season of the end of colored leaves. You will have a great sense of accomplishment in the goal you have walked with your own power by stepping on the larch’s fallen leaves! Enjoy Nordic Walking with lots of friends!
(Note) It is not a marathon event. Please be sure to participate in Nordic walking.

An attractive variety of events!


The trail is a mix of trails, lakesides and roads. It is 21km based on the JNFA sanctioned course located in Lake Reisenji.


There is a hot spring at the start goal point. There is no need to get in a car with sweat.


Lunch pack. After completing your journey, you will receive a delicious lunch at the Tengunoyakata!


You will receive an Original Participation Award (T-shirt).
