The organising committee of the Kobe Marathon have announced that this year’s 10th running on November 21 has been cancelled.

It is the second year in a row that Kobe has been cancelled. Organisers had planned to stage the race with a field of 20,000 participants but have decided to postpone the 10th edition one year to November, 2022.

Organisers cited the lack of a foreseeable end to the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting difficulty of securing adequate medical staff and volunteers.
