Notes: 1947 was the inaugural year. This race was known as the Kagawa Marathon thru 1960 and the Kagawa Road Races thru 1996. The venue was Takamatsu for 1947-1951 amd 1953. Both Marugame and Takamatsu are in Kagawa-ken (prefecture). Race winners are the first finisher. In 1974, Etsuzo Obayashi (JPN) was declared the winner (1:08:19) since the first finisher Hiroshi Yamaguchi was competing as a guest (open sanka). The half marathon course is basically out-and-back with the start and finish at 15 meters and the low point at sea level. The race distance for 1947-1960 was a marathon; for 1961-1970, it was 35 km, and for 1971-1996, it was 20 km.  The 2006 race was celebrated as the 60th anniversary and races were held the day before (February 4th) with the half marathon winners being 1:25:07 Yasuto Ogawa (JPN) and 1:57:20 Reiko Motoki (JPN) and the 5 km winners being 17:01 Makoto Taketomi (JPN) and 20:50 Noriko Okuhara (JPN).  (Finisher: half marathon 39+6; 5 km 30+6).
