“Sporty Model” Audition


The Nagoya Women's Marathon, a passionate supporter and admirer of women in the marathon sport with the slogan “GO WOMEN,” is delighted to launch a new project, “GO RUNWAY,” to support women who try to break onto the international fashion/mode scene.

The first event of this project will be the “GO RUNWAY” audition, an audition for “Sporty Models” who have a healthy and sporty mindset.

Those selected as “Sporty Models” will receive professional training that will pave the way for a leap onto the world stage (RUNWAY).

At the Nagoya Women's Marathon 2024, a health and sports-themed fashion show, “GO WOMEN × GO RUNWAY,” will be held. It will be a great promotional opportunity to attract domestic and international media from the approximately 90-meter runway, which will also serve as the stage for the world's top athletes' competition and Japan's national marathon team trials.
