In addition to the entry fee, participants must donate at least two units (one unit: JPY 500) or more as charity donation.
All marathon runners who participate in this competition will be divided into seven teams and will compete as a team. The winner will be the team with the best average time among all finishers. 100 runners selected in a drawing among the finishers of the winning team will be given berth placed for the Osaka Marathon 2018! The privileges will not apply for those participants in the wheelchair race and challenge run.
