Mazda celebrated the 52nd edition of “The Ekiden Road Relay”, which was held in March 2017 month. This event is hosted by Mazda annually at Hiroshima.
The relay race saw a bunch of enthusiastic participants from Satven Japan as well. The participants ran on a 16.3km-route.
The event was held in 1966 for the first time with an intent to communicate with and understand the needs of local communities. Over the years, it also has helped to improve camaraderie between colleagues.
This year saw around 2000 runners from 298 teams, both inside and outside Mazda. It was inspiring for the runners to see their colleagues on the track, running together.
