Ekiden 2020 Announced

The 2020 Ekiden relay has been announced, and our club captains Beth @bethward and Mark @markholland have started our planning. Read on for more information, and visit the Facebook post to register your interest.

This years Ekiden relay will take place on Sunday 12th July at Woodbridge School. The 26.2 mile race will be run by teams of six as a relay. Legs: 1 x 7.2km, 3 x 5km and 2 x 10km.

There is also a Junior race which will be run by teams of 4 as a relay – (Under 16s only with under 8s to run with an adult). Legs: 4 x 1.1 miles.

Before we can organise our Kruisers teams, Mark Holland and I would like to know who is interested in taking part. This is a fantastic event for runners and spectators alike, so if you think you and/or your child (please state their age) would be interested in taking part, please leave your name(s) below. Ekiden is great fun and open to all abilities, so please don’t worry about being a new runner, or feel that you need to run at a certain pace to take part.

Due to demand and logistics, we will only be allocating spaces to runners who take part solely for Kesgrave Kruisers. Therefore, you cannot run for another Club as well.

Please note that you will need to be a signed up member of Kesgrave Kruisers to be part of one of our teams. So, if you have not yet done so, please register for an account and then sign up as a member on our website!

Once we have an idea of who would like to join in with this, we can allocate team places accordingly. Please be aware that this post is to gauge interest levels only and does not guarantee you a place as we will be limited on the number of teams we can enter.
