The city of Marugame in Kagawa has announced that February’s Kagawa Marugame International Half Marathon has been postponed for one year.

Mayor Kyoji Matsunaga explained the decision, saying, “Due to the rapid rise in coronavirus infections since the beginning of the year, we made the decision to postpone the race a year.”

The Kagawa Marugame International Half Marathon had been scheduled for 6 February. Every year it has welcomed 10,000 runners from over 20 countries, but due to the coronavirus pandemic the 2021 was postponed a year to 2022. Around 8000 people from across the country had entered the 2022 race, but in light of the explosion in new coronavirus cases they now find themselves in the situation of having the race postponed another year. The 2023 edition is scheduled for 5 February.
