Join a Friskis team at Ekiden to complete a marathon
07 October 2023
Friskis will participate in this year's DHL Brussels Ekiden on Saturday, 21 October 2023, at 1pm at King Baudouin Stadium. Ekiden is a yearly run in which a team of six runners cover together the distance of a marathon of 42.195 km. The first, third and fifth runner each cover 5 km, the second and fourth runner 10 km and the final runner covers the remaining 7.195 km. Further information on Ekiden can be found here: https://brusselsekiden.be/en/.
If you are interested please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, 8 October indicating the preferred distance you would like to run (5, ~7 or 10km). Ekiden also asks for the following details:
The registration fee per team of six persons is 201,40 € (or 190,- € plus VAT) or 33,57 Euros per person. Friskis offers to pay half of the registration fee for the first three teams of six runners, that is 100,70 Euros. Thus, in the confirmation email from Friskis the first 18 runners to register would be asked to transfer only 16,78 Euros instead of 33,57 Euros to the Friskis account BE80 3101 5675 1177 with 'Ekidon + name' as a reference.
Based on the indicated distance Friskis will group together six runners and register them as a team. If you happen to have a group of six runners with whom you would like to run together, please indicate this when you send us your registration message.
We look forward to seeing many of you on 21 October at 1pm at King Baudouin Stadium.
