Organised by Ipswich JAFFA Running Club, the relay gets held in July of each year. In a team of six runners, you complete a marathon distance in the form of a relay. The relay starts with a 7.2k leg, then a 5k, 10k,5k, 10k and finally a 5k portion.
It’s a great social day for Sudbury Joggers, and in previous years, Sudbury has had six teams taking part. Some Sudbury Joggers even dress up! In 2017, we had members Ben and Kat run the 5k leg together in their bridal outfits as they had got married the previous day.
The 2020 and 2021 events got cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ipswich JAFFA RC announced there would be no 2022 Ekiden Relay.
You can find out more about the event from the Ekiden Relay website.
