Race Kit Includes

The pack, which can be collected by the team captain on 29 September, includes all the necessary items to compete in the Ekiden: envelopes with six starting numbers, a tasuki (relay cord), an info letter, change form and the rulebook with a complete course map. Starter packs for every individual runner will contain a race number with a chip, safety pins and an info letter.

Timing

Timekeeping is done with a chip attached in your Tasuki. Make sure not to bend the chip to ensure it works properly. Carpets at the entrance and exit of the stadium will register every runner through the chip. A runner’s time on the track will not count for his or her individual time. The time run on the track by the six runners of a team will however be added to the final result of the entire team.
