WHAT IS THE EKIDEN?

The Ekiden is a Japanese relay that's all about teamwork, rivalry and competition. Runners pass along their tasuki (or sash) as fast as possible, and while each leg is run separately, teams compete as one.

GEAR FOR A STRONG FINISH

Run the race with confidence in performance-ready running shoes—from ultra-supportive to bouncy and fast-feeling.
