3 December 4.30AM – Orchard Road
The Ekiden, a concept which originally began in Japan, is a hugely popular running format. Teams of six runners bring their training and teamwork together to complete 42.195km.
The first participant of the team will begin the relay at the same start point and time as the Marathon participants. Each team member will run a section of the marathon, passing the team sash to their next teammate at each of the five Ekiden points.
Ekiden runners will also be sharing this route with Full Marathoners, with detailed changeover points to be announced closer to event date.
