Announcement of race cancellation2020.03.14

Please be informed that, after much consideration, we have decided to cancel The Second FunTrails Round Hanno 50K/8K.

The reason I established Fun Trails was so that race participants and local inhabitants can enjoy events together. In addition, even if small, I would like to have a positive impact on the local economy and society.

However, given the circumstances of the corona virus (in particular, that an infected person might show no symptoms, that it will likely remain difficult to obtain masks and disinfectant, and that the overall situation is volatile and evolving) we cannot meet these
objectives. Accordingly, we decided that it was necessary to cancel the race. This was a very difficult decision and we made it after extensive consultations with parties internally and externally.

I would like to thank everyone who was going to participate as either a runner or a volunteer. Hopefully we will see you next year!

We will return some part of your entry fee by RUNPO. We will provide more information about this once we decide the details with R-bies (RUNNET). T-shirts will be sent to runners after Monday, April 13.

Lastly, please accept my deep condolences for the people who have passed away from coronavirus and I sincerely hope that those who are infected recover as early as possible.
