MT.AWA SKYRACE 2020

We have made preparations for the postponement of this event, but we have decided to cancel the event.

We have been coordinating with related parties and aiming to postpone holding within the year, we have been considering application methods and new attempts at other venues, but the recent COVID-19 infection situation are still very difficult to hold the competition while ensuring health and safety as the highest priority.

In the nature of Niigata, in the course where you can feel the beauty of MT.AWA, we made various efforts to provide a place to share the beatiful time, but we could not find the proper method according to this year's policy of each related organization.

We would like to thank all those who made entry for this event from the bottom of our heart. But we are deeply sorry for being unable to provide everybody who has spent the days of training looking forward to the day of the event with the opportunity to show their daily efforts. We sincerely apologize for the fact that the negotiations have been difficult and the announcement itself has become very late.

Participation fees for this tournament will be refunded through "paypal", excluding administrative fees.

In order to refund as much participation fee as possible to all runners, we will refrain from sending participation prizes. By the end of November, you will receive an e-mail from us or get refund through paypal.

In addition, in order to make some hope for MT.AWA SKYRACE 2021, we will once again plan following alternative events.
