The Grenoble Ekiden relay marathon has reached record levels of popularity this year, with nearly 5,200 runners expected—that’s 60 six-runner teams more than last year! Participants are gearing up for the Sunday, October 22 event with the traditional lunchtime training (Tuesdays at Parc Paul-Mistral and Thursday in the Presqu’île neighborhood right up until the week of the marathon) plus a new challenge created by Hardis Group and Sébastien Chabal using the Watthealth connected sports and health app for GIANT teams to see who can run the most steps from September 25 to October 9! GIANT teams can pick up their bibs on Friday, October 20 between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the tent in front of the MINATEC campus on Parvis Louis-Néel.
Adults can register until October 9 at noon at http://www.grenoble-ekiden.fr/ and children can register on site the day of the race.
