The course of the half marathon is largely linear, beginning at the Marugame Stadium and heading eastwards before abruptly looping back to follow the same path back towards the finish point within the stadium.
The race in Marugame was first held in 1947 as a full-length marathon, known as the Kagawa Marathon and a companion 20 km race began in 1949 in addition to the scheduled marathon.
