“For convenience of on- and off-island participants, the MVA is pleased to make online registration available in English for the first time this year,” said MVA managing director Christopher A. Concepcion. “For many year, we have registered participants online in Japan, where a majority of runners have come from. We now expand that convenience to our English- speaking markets. Furthermore, we anticipate that all future sporting events organized by the MVA will offer this option. We encourage everyone to register by the early bird deadline of Feb. 12 for the best price.”
