Virtual World Ekiden

Ekiden November 2020

Still up for a bit of a challenge?Gather up your buddies & join in on this one sure to get your attention!!

ASICS is very keen for the World Athletics Family to enter into the Virtual World Ekiden race this month to keep the world moving and active!  Each team comprises six members, who will run a marathon-length relay – each leg is between 5km and 10km – between November 11 and 22.

If you are interested in putting together a team, you can find the information below:

How to participate:

Registration started as of 1st October (still time to sign up!)

Teams: join with 6 colleagues and allocate a distance… with all laps together you will complete a marathon distance as a team!

  • a TEAM captain registers with Raceroster and recruits friends (or family)
  • Team downloads Runkeeper and is then connected to the race and race window start
  • you can keep track of your team and pass the Tasuki (like Relay baton – in Japan they use a symbolic sash)
  • Your team completes the Marathon legs and wins a Medal! … and maybe some other surprises!

Please pass this information on to any of your stakeholders who may also be interested in putting together a team.  (you don’t need to run together, it can be done at your own liking as long as you complete your designated leg for your team).
