About Ekiden

Origins of the sport date back to when a message would be delivered by a messenger passing it to another messenger until it reaches its final destination.

Although there are now other methods to deliver a message, the tradition of Ekiden remains through the sport. Ekiden have been historically used in Japan to promote unity as a team as well as personal perseverance.
