Ekiden Relay Event – Expression of Interest

7 June 2022 - By Ben O'leary

The Ekiden Relay event is an annual race held by Ipswich Jaffa. Originating as a popular race format in Japan, it involves each team of 6 people taking on legs of different lengths which add up to a marathon. One runner will tackle 7.2km, three will complete a 5km leg and two will take on 10km legs.

Ekiden this year will be held on the 7th August at Woodbridge School, just past Ipswich.

To give you an idea, the legs will be run around a 2.5km loop, mostly on grass. There will be food and drink on sale, and the day should be good fun with those team members not currently running being able to support and cheer on their teammates/club-mates throughout the race.

We’ve been asked to reserve team spaces, and so we need to gauge demand. If you’re interested in this event, please fill out the form below.

For full details you can check out their fancy website here – https://www.ipswichekiden.co.uk/, but the important stuff is all above.

As always, give us a shout with any questions.

Your Team Captains,

Ben and Liz
