One of the main attraction of Kanazawa marathon is food which is provided at the food stations. Last year, many runners really enjoyed the food and gained energy. However, few people couldn’t eat due to lack of stocks.
This year, the food will be upgrate and provide more than last year. In this article, I will introduce the latest information of the food.
The food stations “Tabemassi station”
There are five food stations are called “Tabemassi stations” in the course. “Tabemassi” means “please eat” in Kanazawa dialect. Generally, typical marathons provide fruits and drinks though Kanazawa marathon is much different. They provide the specialties food of Kanazawa.
- The Fruits spot（14.3 km）
- Japanese confection spot（19.6 km）
- Rice bowl spot（28.5km）
- Kanazawa curry spot（31.4km）
- Kanazawa sweet spot（36.5km）
１: Japanese sweets spot
Look at the guy ! How funny !! He eats a typical sweet “Dorayaki” with wearing another sweet ”Taiyaki ”…
Last year, two Kanazawa’s famous sweets company Urata and Koshiyama Kanseidou provide two kinds of “Dorayaki“. “Dorayaki” is similar to a pancake which filled with sweet red beans.
２: Kanazawa curry spot
One of the representative street foods of Kanazawa is Kanazawa curry. The Kanazawa curry association provided small cup size curry. Many runners commented “It was absolutely delicious“
There are some course have changed this year though the curry will provide the almost same point as last year.
What kind is the other food? How big is it?
Kanazawa’s brand grape “Ruby roman” is the most expensive grape in the world. The price is about JPN 10,000 to 15,000 yen for a bunch. This year, the most expensive selling price was$14,600 at auction.
Unfortunately, this grape will not be provided in the marathon, however the cafe “LE MUSEE DE H” will provide their specialty sweets “Yukizuri ruby roman” which is used ruby roman as ingredient. Moreover, two Kanazawa’s seedless grapes “Queen Seven” and “Shine Muscat” will be provide this year.
２:Increasing of confections
The confections were really popular and run out so fast last year. As a result, this year, more confections will be provided.
“Onigiri/Rice bowl” was provided last year but this year “Inari-zushi” will be supplied. “Inari-zushi” is a type of sushi which is covered by deep fried bean curd and taste is a little bit sweet and sour.
4. Japanese pickles and salt
Last year, some people argue that they need some salty food for preventing heatstroke, hence Japanese pickles and salt will be provided this year in order to solve the problem.
５: Kanazawa curry will be upgrade
This picture is “New Kanazawa curry” which cutlet is added on the top. However, I am bit worried that runners might get stomachache while they are running.
To sum up, Kanazawa marathon will be considerably improved than last year. I hope everyone doesn’t eat too much and have stomachache …Wish you all have memorable running with Kanazawa city and amazing food this year !
【Kanazawa marathon will be held in 23th October】
