I am babbling about the Hakone Ekiden, which is a university men’s team race. These are pretty cool to see, perhaps one day I can scam my way onto one of these teams. These races are taken very seriously by the runners, their universities, and at the pro level by their corporate sponsors. These are the Super Bowl and World Series wrapped in one for the Japanese running community. You will need to install Keyhole TV (the .exe file) which I have praised in the past as a great way to watch Japanese TV, then tune in and watch the greatness.
Thanks to Brett Larner for the write up and preview, which can be found here.
