Event Description

After a successful debut in 2019 when over 50 teams completed the inaugural event come join us for the return of this brilliant relay event for the Sussex Racing Calendar.

Based on the traditional Japanese concept an Ekiden Relay is a mixture of events to complete a half marathon distance over 6 stages across the beautiful Rye Harbour Nature Reserve.

With runners completing a variety of different distances including 5k, 7.5k and 2.5k, this event is not just a test of speed but also tactics. Can you get the combination right and clinch the title?

We will have prizes for running clubs, community groups as well as corporate challenge so everyone can get involved!

We will also have a Junior Ekiden for the younger runners taking place shortly before the main event.

The event is aimed to raise funds for the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and the construction of their new discovery centre. There will also be a range of refreshments and activites for all the family.

There will be a memento for all finishers of the event.

The format of the event involves teams of 6 completing legs in the following order 5k, 2.5k, 7.5k, 2.5k, 2.5k, 1k.
