Ekiden 2022

The Ipswich Ekiden is back for 2022 and due to take place on Sunday 7th August at Woodbridge School. This amazing team relay event is one of the highlights of the Suffolk running calendar.

As normal, the event includes a junior race with teams of 4 running 1.1 miles each, and an adult race with teams of 6 running the marathon distance in legs of 7.2km, 5km, 10km, 5km, 10km, 5km.

We are currently in discussion with the organisers to determine the number of Kesgrave Kruisers teams we can enter for 2022, and hence would like people to register their interest, so that we can request a suitable number of teams. The junior race starts at 9:30 and adult at 10:20, so those registering interest must be available on the Sunday morning into early afternoon on Sunday 7th August.

There is a small charge for entering the event, which the organisers donate to charity. This can be paid via our shop once our teams are confirmed. Registering interest does not guarantee your place in a team, but we will give preference to paid club members who submit their details early.

We would also like to capture details for anyone willing to volunteer on the day (e.g. marshal the junior run while adult race is taking place, or available to volunteer and not run). There is a field on our interest form to indicate if you can volunteer.

Please complete the form below to register interest (adults please submit additional forms for your juniors!):
