The Oise-san Marathon (or the Ise Half Marathon) is an unique experience that takes you around the sacred Ise Jingu Naiku (Inner Shrine) and old landscapes from the Edo Period. Be ready to be amazed by the scenic routes through Oharaimachi and mountains views that surround the city of Ise. Enjoy the traditional shops and restaurants, as well as popular seafood and mountain vegetables dishes after the race! This year's special guest is Mizuki Noguchi, a gold medalist in the 2004 Athens Olympics. Feel the energy and support from the city of Ise!
