MVA promotes Saipan Marathon set for April 16, 2016

The Marianas Visitors Authority has begun promotions for the 11th Annual Saipan Marathon on April 16, 2016.

The MVA participated in the annual Pink Ribbon Marathon held at Hibiya Park in Tokyo on Nov. 28, 2015, distributing Saipan Marathon leaflets to runners at the Delta Air Lines booth.

In addition, one lucky couple won a prize package to participate in the Saipan Marathon, including airline tickets donated by Delta Air Lines, 3-night accommodations donated by Pacific Islands Club Saipan, and marathon entry tickets donated by the MVA.

“With this week’s positive meeting with Delta Air Lines top regional management, we are optimistic about an even stronger turnout from Japan next year for the marathon,” said MVA marketing manager Bruce Bateman. “MVA promotions have already started in Japan, and we welcome all local runners to also help us get the word out about this fabulous local event through their own regional and international running channels. Mark your calendars for April 16.”

The marathon will again include half-marathon, 10K, and 50K courses. The last day to register for the event will be on March 18, 2016, and an early bird registration deadline will also be announced. Registration will include the awards banquet, a finishers T-shirt, and a certificate of completion.

All competitors are required to pick up their race packets on April 15, 2016, at Paseo De Marianas entrance across Fiesta Resort & Spa. Entry forms are available at the MVA office located in on Beach Rd. in San Jose or on the MVA official website Event Calendar at For more information contact MVA Community Projects specialist Ed Diaz at the MVA at 1.670.664.3210 or at (MVA)
