For checking your baggage, you can only use a dedicated bag you will receive when you check in. You cannot check the baggage which doesn't fit in the bag. The checked baggage may be delayed due to the transportation conditions. Please note that the baggage pickup area is placed outdoor, and in case of rain, your baggage in the bag may get wet.

|Possible Interruption||During the race, if anything urgent happens including an accident or fire, emergency vehicles will possibly be passing anywhere on the race course. In this case, the event staff will ask runners to stop running.|
|No Fancy Dress||The marathon course includes narrow roads and unpaved riverbank. On the road we will stop runners when emergency vehicles are passing by, control the runway so that pedestrians can cross the street. Runners are supposed to pay attention to all the places they are running, and we ask you to wear the clothes that are easy to move. Running in fancy dress is fun and somewhat livens up the event. However, it may limit your move and make other runners and the audience on the road uncomfortable. Therefore, in this event, we prohibit participants from running in fancy dress. Also, we do not allow you to wear and display any designs that indicate certain company names and products; trademarks, and other advertisements that are considered to be advertisement activities.|

Pictures and goods related to the event which are authorized the organizers may be sold on commission.|
