1, About Hakone Ekiden (Hako0 Ekiden is based on Hakone Ekiden)

   note:Ekiden is a relay race that uses a sash (string) instead of a baton.

2, The Hakone Ekiden is an intercollegiate relay race held on January 2nd and 3rd every year. Twenty universities, mostly in the suburbs of Tokyo, participate.

3, On January 2, five athletes will head from Ootemachi in Tokyo to Hakone, a hot spring resort in Kanagawa Prefecture, and on the following day, January 3, five athletes will relay back to Tokyo.

4,The Hakone mountain climb, which the athletes will run on January 2, is a popular section of the race among the people because it takes them all the way up a height difference of 874 meters.

5, The next day, we will see if the athletes from each university can complete the race, and if that university will be able to participate in this Ekiden again next year. This is the highlight of the race.
