ENTRY

A Notice Regarding the Cancellation of the 2020 Okayama Marathon

The 2020 Okayama Marathon was scheduled to be hosted on Sunday, November 8th of this year. However, due to the effects of COVID-19’s spread, its cancellation has been confirmed.

We have very carefully considered whether or not the event could be hosted. But in the event that we hosted the marathon, we would be unable to eliminate the risk of infection in settings such as around 16,400 runners from across the country overcrowding in a single area, or the staff and volunteers coming into close contact with those cheering along the sidelines. Due to this, we have considered the safety of the participants and came to the conclusion that the marathon should not be hosted this year.

This may come as unfortunate news to all of the runners who have been looking forward to this event, but we would appreciate your understanding.

Looking towards the next marathon, we will continue to work hard and make numerous improvements, in hopes of running a stellar event that many people will enjoy. We are hoping for your continued support and cooperation with us.
