Introduction of Marugame International Half Marathon
The Kagawa Marugame International Half Marathon,which traces its route through the streets of Sanuki in the early spring, opens this year for the 73rd time as a firm fixture in the Marugame calendar, and has become one the winter seasonal markers.
Our race is the first case in Japan to be granted the Silver Label status half marathon section by International Association of Athletic Federation(IAAF), and the 73rd race is also authorized the Silver Label status.
That we are able to host such an internationally acclaimed event is no doubt down to the efforts of everyone connected to its organization, and the gift of cooperation and understanding from the people of Marugame, for which I am truly grateful.
