Watch the Fukui Ekiden Live Online

by Brett Larner

The 2009 Fukui Super Ladies' Ekiden took place Nov. 8. Despite going up against the East Japan Women's Ekiden the same day, Fukui featured 47 corporate and university teams in its field with star individual runners including Kayoko Fukushi (Team Wacoal), Kazue Kojima (Ritsumeikan Univ.), Philes Ongori (Team Hokuren) and Danielle Philomena Cheyech (Team Uniqlo). Fuji TV will broadcast a one-hour highlight version of the six-stage, 30 km race from 2:38 a.m. to 3:38 a.m. on Nov. 12. International viewers should be able to watch online for free using the Keyhole TV software. Click here for more information on online viewing. JRN will publish results of the ekiden following the broadcast.
