THE Northern Marianas Athletics fully supports the 2020 Saipan Marathon, NMA president Ramon Tebuteb said.

The marathon will be held on Saturday and is composed of a 5-kilometer run, a 10-kilometer run, a half-marathon and a full marathon.

For the 10-kilometer run, Tebuteb said the 10K Oceania Championship was supposed to be held concurrently. This means that the participants in the 10K Oceania Championship are scheduled to be on island.

However, runners from some island jurisdictions decided not to participate in the Oceania event. But local runners are still competing in the 10K Oceania Championship.

Over 700 participants from Japan and South Korea have already registered for the Saipan Marathon although some have cancelled their flights.
