A serious rock slide along the Yoshida trail was reported on December 21, 2018.
The incident occurred right below the goal line of the summit course.
Accordingly, the race may be cut short to avoid accidents and ensure the safety of racers while the trail is being restored.
Racers must understand the possibility that changes to the course may be announced very close to the day of the race depending on the status of restoration efforts.

It is crucial for all applicants to thoroughly understand the current situation when applying for the summit course race.
Please be aware that there will be no refunds for the summit course after registration even in the event that the race is cut short.
We sincerely regret to inform you of these unfortunate circumstances and ask for your patience and understanding.
