This 2020, many Marathon events in Japan have been canceled due to COVID-19.

Now people all around the world are fighting against the virus; there are many runners that exercise daily and work hard to maintain their health and fitness.

Although the Mt. Fuji Marathon 2020 has been canceled, we want to share Japan’s symbol Mt. Fuji, and bring motivation to run. We hope that this will become of use to everyone developing their physical fitness.

We hope that runners will look forward to joining us again at Mt. Fuji in Japan. As for 2020, we will be hosting the Mt. Fuji International Marathon 2020 Virtual Run in which you can participate from anywhere in the world. We have prepared categories in which those who are unable to run a full marathon can participate too.

We look forward to your participation.
