The JFS Ekiden Club Race Saturday April 26th

Welcome all members to our own Club Race. You should have purchased your BIB by now from Sukaoutdoor and be registered on www.ikutlomba.com
Entry & Registration closes Friday, April 25th

The start for all races is at 6:45

The start / finish / Ekiden relay changeover is at the roundabout in front of the Schmutzer Ape Zoo (also called Bunderan Gorila). Participants must buy a Zoo entry ticket themselves, just like any Saturday.

Individual Events

  • 10EM (English Miles) or 16 k in two 8.05 k laps
  • Half Marathon being 21.1k in two 8.05 k laps plus a third loop of 5 k

  • Team Event – Ekiden or Relay
    Instructions for Each Team of 3 runners (minimum one lady runner per team – you can of course have two ladies and one man).

  • First runner starts 0600 – he or she must use the lowest race BIB number among your team of three.
  • Second runner is released by first runner on crossing the S/F line – must use the next lowest BIB number and does the same 8.05 k loop
  • Third Runner is released by the second runner crossing S/F line and must do the 5 k loop to return to the same S/F line.
  • Please Note
    To time these events is quite a challenge in the programming of the timing equipment, hence we have to be strict on the order and allocation of the numbers (a 10EM BIB can not be used to join the 21.1K, Ekiden numbers cannot be switched and must be in the correct ascending order among team mates).
