Hanoi Kizuna Ekiden 2018

November 18, 2018

Hanoi – 18 Nov 2018.

Last Sunday, ISN – Vietnamhousing sent two elite running teams to participate Kizuna Ekiden Run in Hanoi. At the event, there was a relay that consisted of 8 laps around the magical Hoan Kiem Lake, a total distance of 14 km and was run by each team of 4 people.

Each ISN team member finished 2 laps of total 3.5km. The hand over to the next runner is done by passing on the sash aka “Tasuki”. Because of the team aspect, it makes the Ekiden very popular among companies.

Ekiden is a combination of two Japanese characters. Eki stands for “place” and Den means “delivery”. Important documents and messages were passed on to each other in this way by different runners.Despite having one runner with “kidney problem”, two teams of ISN – Vietnamhousing delivered the Tasuki back to the finish line “safe and sound”.
