Ekiden - team marathon race

Companies, city structures, NGOs, schools, families or friends: form a team of 6 runners you like and surpass yourself by running this 42 km marathon! Unforgettable team-building moment, you will come out more united from this experience. This is the latest idea from EKIDEN!

On a circuit passing through the 8th military region, commune of Goma and the roundabout of the parquet, team members, friends and families can follow and encourage their runners at each passage.
