2000 Okinawa Marathon to Cross Kadena

Date Posted: 2000-02-20

This Sunday, February 20th, Kadena Air Base will host an important portion of the famous Okinawa Marathon organized by 12 Central Okinawa Municipal Sponsors. Over 10,000 runners will participate in the day long event that runs through seven of the sponsoring communities and the length of Kadena Air Base.

The race kicks off at 9:00 a.m. from Okinawa Comprehensive Park in Awase. Lead runners are expected to enter the base through gate 2 by 10:00 a.m., with the final runners exiting Gate 5 by 2:00 p.m. Both gates will be closed to vehicular traffic between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Members of the public who desire to cheer on friends and relatives are welcome to walk to desired positions anywhere along the on-base Marathon course. Kadena is an excellent spot to cheer on runners since it is at the halfway point, just where runners might start having second thought about finishing.

On-base traffic congestion can be anticipated in the vicinity of the community services concentration near the commissary and PX, with delays in traffic attempting to use Douglas Boulevard.

For more information about on-base traffic, contact 18th SFS @ 634-1397. For info on off-base traffic, contact Ms. Yukiko Taba @ 930-0088.
