In Praise
of the Ekiden

Every year, we introduce a Relay Collection, inspired by style and culture of our favorite races around the world. This year, we celebrate Japan’s ekiden, long-distance relay races that captivate the nation and establish a pipeline of world-class runners, forged in the fire of these epic multi-day competitions. Paying homage to the pageantry of the Hakone Ekiden, a 218-kilometer race from Tokyo to Hakone contested by Japan’s top universities, this 2:09 Mesh split short features the bold colors of the flags of the Tokyo Metropolis and is designed for long-distance running.

Edo Purple &
Vivid Green

Ekiden are a riot of color. Every team proudly displays their affiliation and aims to stand out for the thousands of fans lining the roads, waving university flags and cheering in support. For our kits, we selected Edo purple and vivid green, emblems of the Tokyo Metropolis. Edo purple is a traditional Japanese color that became fashionable during the vibrant Edo period. The green is drawn from the symbol of Tokyo, featuring three vivid green arcs in a ginko leaf-shaped T.

Quick Splits

Made from the same 2:09 Mesh used in our Van Cortlandt Collection, but cut in a split short silhouette like our Twilight Splits, the Ekiden Shorts feature a 2.5” inseam and two internal pockets for fuel. With a mesh antimicrobial liner and drawstring waistband, these are easy-fitting shorts for running long distances.

Racing In Izumo

In recent years, a team of Ivy League athletes has traveled to Japan to try their hand at racing the Izumo Ekiden. They learn quickly just how intense the racing is and just how avid the fan-base can be. Brett Larner reported from the 2015 edition in METER.

The Relay 
Collection

A matching singlet completes the full Ekiden Kit. Made from our 2:09 Mesh, our Ekiden Singlet ships with a special-edition tasuki sash.
