Important Infection Countermeasures against COVID-19<1>
This competition will implement measures against infectious disease based on the Guidance on Resuming Road Races established by the Japan Association of Athletics Federations, with the utmost efforts being made to prevent the spread of infection.
Please read and understand the following information before applying.

①Possibility of switching to online marathon
Depending on the state of infection, it may not be possible to hold this race normally—for example, when the national or local government has issued a state of emergency or when the holding of events has been restricted. In this case, an online marathon will be held as an alternative event for either all entrants or some entrants (to be determined by random draw, etc.), with the runners in question asked to participate online. In addition, if runners from overseas are unable to participate in the race due to restrictions on entry into Japan during the event period, they may participate in the online marathon as an alternative. In such cases, entry fees will not be refunded and the right to run in the next competition will not be granted.

②Submitting a health check sheet
A health check sheet will be included in the participation guide pack, which is planned to be sent in mid-February. Runners participating in this race must submit a health check sheet at the number pickup on Friday March 11 or Saturday March 12, 2022. Intended to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the health check sheet is a self-report sheet used to screen participation requirements in line with guidelines from the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare and the Japan Sports Agency. Entrants are required to fill in name, address, behavior history prior to appearance date, physical condition, etc. Entrants who do not submit it or who enter false information may not be permitted to participate. In addition, if the risk of infection is determined to be high based on behavior history and physical condition, participation may be refused after medical examination or interview by a doctor. The same applies if examination by a doctor is refused. In such cases, runners can participate in the online marathon as an alternative. Additionally, the entry fee will not be refunded.

③Regarding COVID-19 infection tests and body temperature tests, and refusal of participation 
We are planning to carry out testing (antigen testing, etc.) for COVID-19 infection at the number pickup on Friday March 11 and Saturday March 12, 2022. Depending on the test results, entrants may not be permitted to participate in the race on Sunday, March 13. Body temperature testing will also be conducted at time of admission to the race venue. As part of number pickup, body temperature testing will be conducted at the entrance gate to the East Sports Center and at the number bib  check gate on race day (Sunday March 13). Runners with elevated body temperature may be refused to enter  the venue or participate in the race, regardless of the presence or absence of COVID-19 infection. In such cases, runners can participate in the online marathon as an alternative. Additionally, the entry fee will not be refunded.

④Handling of personal information
With a view to preventing the spread of COVID-19, and only when a government agency requests us to submit personal information (including health check sheets), personal information may be provided to that government agency as deemed appropriate.

⑤Participation requirements
If runners do not comply with the infection control measures required by the event, such as wearing a mask, disinfecting hands, and other requests in regard to behavior, they may not be permitted to take part. In this case, the entry fee will not be refunded.

⑥Regarding matters described in these guidelines
The restrictions described in these guidelines may be added or relaxed depending on the state of COVID-19 infection and requests from the national or local governments.
