Six people form a team, with every team member running his or her own distance. During this relay race, the participants hand over the “ tasuki“ or a sash to the next runner.
The Ekiden is an exciting race as the team’s success depends on each of the six runners. Every member of the team is important. That is why this race is so popular with companies.
On a last note: the world record is held by a Kenyan team since 2005: 1hr57m06s. Recorded in Chiba, Japan.
The “42km” long course (more info coming soon) of the Brussels Ekiden runs from King Baudouin Stadium to the Park of Laeken. You must pass on the tasuki to your team member on the track within a clearly demarcated relay zone for your team.
