Program & location


Handing over the tasuki to your team-mate has to be done within the designated relay zones of your team.

IMPORTANT: this year your team will always change runners on the same spot. This location will be marked inside the stadium based on your race number. Make sure to inform your team members in advance! This will make it easier for supporters to follow your team's performance.

Click here to see the timing zones and de relay zones.

In order to easily find your next runner, relay zones are used by a maximum of 20 teams each. All relays will take place in the zone allocated to your team.

  • zone 1: team 100 - 120
  • zone 2: team 121 - 140

  • zone 4: team 161 - 180
  • zone 5: team 181 - 200
  • zone 6: team 201 - 220
  • etc.

Runners who complete two laps will pass through the stadium in lanes 1, 2 and 3. The relay zones are in lanes 4, 5 and 6.
Only runners next in line are allowed inside the relay zone, when their team-mate is entering the stadium, during the following time slots:

  • Runner 2: between 13:13 and 13:51
