We are pleased to announce that the 18 member tournaments of the 2023 season of the “Japan Grand Prix Series” have been decided.
The “Japan Grand Prix Series” is a general term for track and field competitions that started in 2018 and compete for points throughout the year for designated competitions. By competing through the series as a domestic high-level tournament that leads to international competitions, we aim to strengthen and nurture athletes who can play an active role on the world stage.
13 tournaments nationwide in 2018, 14 tournaments in 2019, 4 tournaments in 2020 (9 tournaments canceled or postponed due to the spread of new coronavirus infection), 10 tournaments in 2021 (due to the spread of new coronavirus infection) 1 competition was canceled), and 12 competitions were held in 2022.
In 2023, the 6th year, we will openly invite competitions that meet the membership conditions set by this federation, decide membership competitions after membership screening, and 18 competitions, the largest number ever in the series, will participate in the series. We will inform you about the grade, date, event, and point system of each tournament around January 2023 (planned).
