Nov. 3 Gunma Marathon Plans to Go Ahead
Written by tokyoclub on June 17, 2021
The marathon will feature a field of 5,000, with another 4,000 places available in the 10 km. Both divisions will start and finish at Shoda Shoyu Stadium in Maebashi and follow their traditional courses, and both races will start in waves of 1,000 people to reduce runner density on the course.
As additional measures to reduce risk, no celebrity guests will be invited and no stage shows or other supporting events will take place. Runners will be required to wear masks before and after the race, and family members, supporters and locals will be asked not to come to the start or finish areas or to cheer along the course.
