■ Swim in Shinmaiko Marine Park

Swimming in Shinmaiko Marine Park is prohibited, aside from race and warm up on race day. This is incredibly important, please do not break this rule! The future of our race depends on our athletes’ compliance.

■ Bike course practice: (the first loop)

Many athletes, (cyclists, and wheelchair runners) train on this service road (the first section of the bike course) all through the year, and many accidents have been reported, some including fatalities.
This has really concerned local businesses, government and police about the safety of this road, not only during a race, but also when athletes train here.
In order to secure the road for use in our race, and the future of our event, we have had many meetings with local organizations and have been able to gain their understanding and permission. Between now and race day, if reckless riding is observed, the race will be canceled by the police.
This service road is used generally for local, corporate and industrial business. We would like to promote and protect the harmony of the lives of our local people and businesses. Practicing on this road disrupts the flow of everyday life here for many people, so we (the race office) are asking our athletes to not use this service road for practice.

■ Please Do Not:

-ride in large groups, or in a long line
-swerve
-ride in TT position with head down. Please remain alert at all times.
-cut off vehicles in traffic. Please use proper judgement when entering traffic, and follow the posted instructions for stopping.
*Any of the above, is a violation of the Road Traffic Laws in Japan and you can be fined/punished.

■ Roads (designated only for cars/trucks)

On all toll roads, you must not ride bike. Nishi-Chita-Sangyo By-pass (runs parallel to the service road) is also used exclusively by cars from North of "Hinaga"(Chita city).
Centrair Airport bridge which connects the airport and main land is also used only for cars/trucks, bike traffic is prohibited. If you are staying at a hotel by the airport, please use alternatives (car or train) for connection.
*Bike traffic on those roads is prohibited by Japan's Road Traffic Laws.

■ Please do not enter school area

Tokoname junior high school will be provided as an AID station this year.
To ensure a harmonious partnership with the school it is absolutely prohibited to enter this ground except for on race day (Sunday, June 11, 2017).
It seems that some cyclists like to come and check it out, but the school has asked us very strongly to respect their privacy and steer clear until race day! For the future of our events and to garner community support, please respect the school's wishes. Thank you for cooperation.
