The Ekiden is a team relay, whereby five participants (of mixed or same gender) will compete in five stages of unequal distances, totalling 42.195km.

At the first changeover point, the second runner of the same team will receive a sash from the first runner; this relay will continue until the fifth / last runner of the team finishes the race.

There will be no bag drop service provided at the changeover zones. All Ekiden runners are strongly encouraged to travel light, if possible. Otherwise, Ekiden runners may consider the following:
– Drop bag off at Bag Deposit located at F1 Pit Building before race and use shuttle service to reach changeover zones (except for Ekiden Runner 4)
– Pass your bag to the next preceding runner when the sash is handed over at the changeover zone.
