To all the fans of Nordic Walking,
Due to Hagibis Typhoon the INWA World Cup in Nagano, Japan had to be cancelled. Despite of this cancellation we had about 50 people who came to meet each other at the event place. This event would have been very succesfull if this Typhoon hadn’t hit this part of Japan. Hundreds of registered participants had to cancel their arrivals. We walked about 6km on the competition trails and you can see on this video, how the trails were damaged in the forest. I would like to express on behalf of all the Nordic Walkers my regrets to organizer JNFA. We feel really sorry for you but we naturally hope that next year we will try again with better luck. Event place is very beautiful and the trails are very well designed. Having said this, I would like to welcome all the Nordic Walkers to Japan next year.
President of INWA
