We updated our WEB about Course. You can also check the profile here.
■ 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.
