The Grenoble Ekiden relay marathon has become more popular with every passing year. This year, the entire event was overhauled to accommodate even more runners. The race, to be held on Sunday, October 23, will welcome 800 six-runner teams (up from 650 teams in 2015). The new course will circle around the Presqu’île neighborhood.

And there is even a race for kids aged 4–16 (with courses from 400 m to 2 km), free of charge.
If you would like to train with other runners from GIANT, sessions will take place from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., on Tuesdays at Grenoble’s Paul-Mistral park in front of the Clémenceau sports hall and on Thursdays at the Europole gymnasium.

And don’t forget to pick up your GIANT bib on Friday, October 21, between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. at the CEA Grenoble main reception area at 17 rue des Martyrs.

Register until October 10 at http://www.grenoble-ekiden.fr/ for adults, and, for children, directly at the race.
