Medical Aid System
Medical Aid Stations
There are a total of 15 medical aid stations, 2 at the starting area, 10 along the course, and 3 at the finish area, where doctors and nurses are standing by with AEDs (automated external defibrillators) prepared. Each medical aid station has heaters, water servers, and other supplies; and the finish area has a tent equipped with a jet heater. In this way, we at the Kyoto Marathon are taking all possible measures to ensure medical aid for runners.
