HOKA is excited to launch this new shoe with a celebration of the running community with an Ekiden Strava challenge. Why Ekiden? Ekiden is about moving forward together and bringing out the best in each other. It’s a relay-style running race that originated in Japan, wherein team members run the distance from one station to the next and pass off a sash, or tasuki, to the next runner. When you receive the tasuki, you are not just running for yourself: you are running for your teammates who wore it before you and those who will wear it after. Ekiden has grown into an enormously popular sport in Japan and beyond. To read more about ekiden, check out the HOKA blog and be sure to join the HOKA Ekiden Strava Challenge today.
