We have made the decision to delay the start of the UTMF from 13:00 to 15:00.
All the cut-off times including the finish cut-off will be extended by 2 hours.
The opening ceremony will start at 14:30.
Although we expect the weather conditions to improve, please be aware that there is a possibility that the race will be stopped temporarily and/or cancelled at A3 FUMOTO if the heavy rain/storm alert is not repealed by the time the top racers reach this aid station.
In the case the race is cancelled, the race will arrange transportation back to the start line in Kawaguchiko.
As such, we highly advise you to make arrangements for accommodations for tonight (Friday) just in case.
Please check your SMS emergency announcements and notices posted on the bulletin boards at the Ohike Kouen information booth.
