“ekiden – noun: a Japanese long-distance relay race, typically on roads”
The Ekiden Relay
Sunday 12th July 2015
The Ekiden has proven to be a great event for the last two years with great turn outs from the club – this year its hoped will be no exception. Its fun because everyone can be involved in the same race, and we hope to do again!
However this year depending on the numbers we want to enter as many competitive teams as people want, as well as teams for those that just want to run for fun! Never forget the funning as shown above!
Use the form below to tell us what you would like and your expected times, we will use this to make up the competitive teams, and to balance the other teams so we can finish together(ish)!?!
