Mayor's Proclamation Ceremony to be Held for Second Annual Honolulu Ekiden and Music Festival

The Honolulu Ekiden Foundation will be recognized in a proclamation ceremony by Mayor Kirk Caldwell for the Honolulu Ekiden and Music Festival. Now in its second year, the Honolulu Ekiden and Music event has the distinction of bringing Japan’s Ekiden tradition to Hawaii, and is the first and only marathon-length relay race and music festival event on the island. Hundreds of Japanese runners will travel to Hawaii to join kama`aina runners and share this unique Japanese event, modeled after messengers in ancient Japan who would deliver messages by passing them to another messenger until it reached its final destination. Teams of two to six people, including Hawaii high school teams, will run relay-style to promote the Japanese Ekiden tradition of team unity and spirit.
