Vietnam Kizuna Ekiden 2018 - Official Trailer

Kizuna Ekiden 2018 – Run for Traffic Safety is an occasion for runners from Vietnam and Japan to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relationship between the two countries. It will start from Ly Thai To Garden; each team of 4 members has to finish a total of 8 rounds of Hoan Kiem lake (Hanoi), adding up to 14km, divided equally between team members: 2 rounds per runner.

Ekiden is a long-distance running relay race that originated in Japan. In the race, each runner on a team runs the distance from one station to the next, and then hands off a cloth sash, or "tasuki", to the next runner. At the tasuki transmission area, runners have to transfer the tasuki to the next team member within a designated time; if the tasuki is not handed over on time, the team will be excluded from the competition. The result is based on the total running time of the group. The tasuki passes from hand to hand among members of the group, a symbol of solidarity and "Kizuna" (friendship) that connects people.
