Taking its inspiration from the Japanese running culture, the ASICS World Ekiden returns for the 3rd year and challenges teams to complete a marathon distance over the course of six legs of varying distances from 5 – 10km.
Teams must pass their digital tasuki – the narrow band of fabric used traditionally in Ekidens – from one leg to the next, working together in the true spirit of Ekiden for the team to succeed.
