Clash with Olympics puts pressure on logistics

Hokkaido cancels for 2021

The Hokkaido Marathon Organizing Committee has decided to suspend the 2021 Games, following its cancellation last year.

Organisers said in a statement on their website:

“This competition is usually held on the last Sunday of August, but this year it is difficult to secure personnel involved in overall management due to the period of the Tokyo Paralympics. [Olympic events] will be held in Sapporo from August 5 to 8. Facilities related to the Games will be set up in Odori Park, which is the venue for the Hokkaido Marathon in the Olympic Marathon and the Paralympic Games, and it will take a long time to restore the original condition. We ask for the understanding and cooperation of runners and related parties.”
