  • An outsider on the running circuit! The Adecco Brussels Ekiden is a relay marathon, with 6 runners to a team. This type of race was originally invented in the land of the rising sun, Japan. The place to be: King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels.
  • 27 September 2020
  • Brussels
  • The full price of €430/team will be payed by EY

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.


FURTHER INFORMATION 

The “42-kilometre” long course 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.
