Run a marathon together on Saturday, November 11! And by together, we really mean together. As one team. We cut the distance into six so you and your team can divide the work.
During the SKF Ekiden, each team consists of six runners who take turns covering part of the mythical 42.195 km. The first, third and fifth runners each cover 5 km, runners two and four take 10 km. The sixth and last runner brings the Tasuki, the ribbon that is passed each time, across the finish line after 7.195 km. Teamwork!
While you await your turn to cruise through Tongeren with the Tasuki, we provide atmosphere, conviviality and everything you need. The drinks will be fresh, the refreshments ready to be consumed and the DJ will make it a party on the grounds.
