The Nakayama Grand Jump (中山グランドジャンプ) is a Japanesemarker horse racing steeplechase, held at Nakayama Racecoursemarker every year in mid-April. It is for thoroughbreds, four years old and older, run at a distance of 4250m (2 5/8 miles + 84 feet).

With a purse of over ¥150 million (Approx. US$1.5 million) for its 2008 inception, the Nakayama Grand Jump is one of the richest steeplechase race in the world.

The race was first run in 1999, and was run over 4100m until 2000.

It is one of two Grade I steeplechase races on Japanese turf; the other is the Nakayama Daishogai, which uses the same racecourse under a slightly-different configuration.

The race is run on Nakayama's steeplechase course, which follows a twisted path on the racecourse interior over a series of jumps, inclines and declines. The dirt course is also crossed several times. On the final lap, with about 1200m (3/4 mile) remaining, horses enter the outer turf course along the backstrech for the race's final three jumps.
