The Rotorua Ekiden Relay is proud to boast the unofficial fancy dress world championships. From young to old and simple costume to extravagant centre piece, teams have been dressing up for the Ekiden from the early days.
Now teams can compete as the fastest fancy dress runners and as the best dressed. There are prizes for both categories with the top 3 fastest and the top 3 fanciest, as chosen by the Ekiden participants on the day.
So raid your wardrobes and get your sewing kits ready!
