However, the trend in marathon competitions around the world is shifting away from "elite marathons" (events for elite runners whose "standard record" is set by the host organization as a condition for participation) like this one.Boston Marathon-London marathon-New York City MarathonA gradual transition to a "major city marathon" (a competition in which elite runners and citizen runners run together on a course set up in the center of a big city).Japan also,2007The Tokyo Marathon, which is held on the Sunday immediately after the Karabiwako Mainichi Marathon (mid-February to early March) (high prize money for winners and top finishers and a high-speed course with less undulations compared to the main event) Year by year, there is a growing tendency for sponsors who value advertising effectiveness and elite runners who value records to gather in the "big city marathon."

100th (2024)

Only in this year, the qualification for participation in the qualifying session has changed from the Kanto Gakuren registrant to the Japan Student Athletics Union Men's registrant.At the same time, the Kanto Student Union team will not be formed[18].

Team entry and section entry

Applications (team entry, section entry) are made in the prescribed format at the date and place presented by the Kanto Federation, and only universities and athletes who are qualified to participate by the examination of the Qualification Examination Committee are allowed to officially participate ( Internal Regulations Article 8)[1].

The team entry is 16 people or less, and the team formation of the section entry is 10 regular players and 6 substitute players (Article 9 of the internal regulations).[1]..However, for international students, the number of entries is limited to 2 and the number of participants is limited to 1 (Article 9 of the Internal Regulations).[1]..The current 16 entries have been made since the 79th (2003), and the background is due to poor physical condition in the last few years.brakeDue to a series of abstentions due to injury, it can be said that the organizer's consideration is to give top priority to the health of the players who play the leading role.Until the 82nd (2006), it was necessary to reduce the number of members from 16 to 14 at the time of section entry, but from the 83rd (2007), it will be possible to register with 16 members even at the section entry. Became.Therefore, the number of substitute players has increased from 4 to 6 (however, as will be described later, entry changes on the day of the outbound and inbound routes are limited to up to 4 as before).

Section entries are roughly divided into regular players and other substitute players who entered from the 1st to 10th wards.Then, the number card prepared by the organizer will be distributed to the regular players.The numbers will be 1, 1 ... in order from the 2st ward, and the substitute players will be from 11th to 16th.The description on the number card is "(number assigned to the university according to the ranking of the previous year and the ranking of the qualifying session)-(No. 1-16)". -3 "(From the 6th session. Prior to that, no number was assigned to each university).

The change is limited to 4 players only by exchanging regular players and substitute players, and section changes are not allowed (Article 10, Paragraph 2 of the Internal Regulations).[1]..In other words, a substitute player can enter any section as a replacement for a regular player by changing the entry on the day, but a regular player who has already been assigned to each section can only run in that section (for example, from the substitute in the 2nd ward). Players can be included, but runners in wards 2 and 4 cannot be changed).In a normal relay race, a doctor is required to submit a medical certificate to replace a substitute athlete, but this tournament does not require it due to consideration for long-term travel, so it is strategically possible to replace a substitute athlete. There are many cases where it is done, so to speakジ ョ ー カ ーHas a positive meaning.On the contrary, the player who replaced the substitute player in the section entry cannot run, soReliable horseThere is also a typical element. It is normal to place the most powerful player in the team in the 2nd ward, but in universities with a large player base, ace may be placed in the "connecting section" to poke the emptiness of other universities.

The tendency is that there are relatively few changes on the outbound route, and in many cases some people change on the inbound route.In addition, it seems that there are few changes in the 2 wards where the ace of each school gathers.To put it the other way around, although it is not possible to become a substitute player as an ace, there are players who are similar to it, players who have strength but are not in good shape, and players who are completely unknown.In recent years, players who have certain power (and are in good condition) to run in any section, and even ace, dare to register as a substitute and put it in any section while checking the entry status of other schools and the result of the outbound route. Universities that take operations have also come to be seen.Teams aiming for victory need to think about their own team after reading the placement of teams that they see as rivals.On the other hand, among the teams that have won the qualifying round and the teams that are expected to struggle, they often lay out a lineup that emphasizes the outbound route.Since the player base is thin and it is difficult to rewind in the second half, the aim is to avoid depression by arranging the ace class in the early stages.In addition, each team often prepares multiple candidates for the 5th and 6th wards, which are special sections.This is because unlike other sections, it is difficult to make a sudden selection due to a sudden accident due to the peculiarity of the course (the result is often not good because players who are not suitable for appointing will run). Is.

Considering that the entire section is over 20km long, it is a big difference from other major relay road races in that players are allowed to change in case of poor physical condition.In addition, it is very important to be able to preserve the vacancy in terms of seeing the players who are not in good shape to the last minute. (From 2006 to 2016, the 4th ward was 18.5km)

Participating team

As mentioned earlier, the Hakone Ekiden was held at the previous year's competition among the Kanto Gakuren member schools.seedWith 10 universities that have acquired the rightsQualifyingA total of 10 universities, including 20 universities that passed the meeting, and 21 teams including the Kanto Student Union team will participate (organization after the 2015st Tokyo Hakone Round-Trip University Ekiden Race in 91).[7].

  1. Seed school (10 schools) --- Within 10th overall ranking in the previous competition
  2. Schools that passed the qualifying round (10 schools) ――The top 10 schools in the qualifying round (5 schools in the commemorative tournament every 11 years)
  3. Kanto Student Union Team (1 team)

Seed school

Universities ranked 10th in this competition will be qualified as "seed schools" to participate in the next competition (Article 13, Paragraph 1 of the Internal Regulations).[1]..In other words, if you win in the top 10 overall in the previous competition, you will be exempted from the obligation to participate in the qualifying round (seed right, qualifying exemption right).However, if a serious scandal is discovered at the university that secured the seed right, the seed right may be deprived.actually,Nippon Sport Science UniversityWas expelled from the track and field club due to cannabis in April 2009.10 competitionSeed rights have been revoked[19].

In Hakone Ekiden, there are 10 seed schools, which is almost the same number as 8 schools in All Japan University Ekiden.


Participation in the seed school is a hope system (common to the relay races sponsored by each school in Japan), but no non-participating teams have occurred yet (Izumo EkidenThen there was an example of occurrence).

In addition, at the 95th Anniversary Tournament, if the corresponding school in the Kanto Incare grade frame has acquired the seed right and secured the participation right, it was decided that the advance will not be done.[4].

From the 83rd to the 90th, if the Kanto Gakuren Selection Team was ranked within the 10th place, the number of seed schools would be 9 and 10 schools would be selected in the next qualifying session (in this case, the next year). The number of schools recommended for the Izumo All Japan University Ekiden Race will also be 9), and the name was changed from "Kanto Gakuren Selection Team" to "Kanto Student Union Team" at the Kanto Gakuren Representative Committee General Assembly in February 2014. It is an open participation[3].

Primary caucus


The Hakone Ekiden qualifying session is held more than two months before the competition, and the guidelines for holding it are set separately (Article 2, Paragraph 14 of the Internal Regulations).[1]..Qualifying sessionJapan Ground Self-Defense ForceTachikawa stationGo around the inner runway, pass through the city of Tachikawa,Showa Memorial ParkA half marathon (21.0975 km) course with the goal inside is run by 10 to 12 runners from each school.[21].

Only athletes with official records from January 1st of the previous year to the day before the qualifying session application deadline and with a record of 1m10000: 34: 00 (limited to track records) are eligible to participate.[1], 10 or more people who are qualified to participate, including vacancy, must be prepared[21]..Previously, there was no such qualification, but as the number of participating schools increased, it became necessary to narrow down the participating schools to some extent at the qualifying stage, so such a qualification was established.[Note 6].

In the qualifying session, 10 schools (10 schools in the commemorative tournament) will be selected based on the total time of the top 11 students from each school.[21].

The handling of records when deciding the ranking in the qualifying session is as follows.[21].

  1. In competition resultsTotal time of 10 peopleUniversities with few are ranked high.
  2. If 1 is the same timeTotal ranking of the top 10 peopleUniversities with few are ranked high.
  3. If the ranking is not decided by 2, each schoolRanking of top competitorsThe top university is ranked high.

The 23rd in Hakone Ekiden (1947) Is being held[22][23].

Initially, the results of the Kanto student 10 miles (about 16.1 km course) were used as the selection material, but the course, distance and selection method of the qualifying session gradually changed, and from the 81st time, the Ground Self-Defense Force Tachikawa station → Half marathon (21.0975 km) course in Tachikawa city area → Showa Kinen Park[24] We are holding a qualifying session at.However, as a countermeasure against new coronavirus infectious diseases, the 97th and 98th qualifying sessions have been changed to courses that do not run in Tachikawa city area.The course of the qualifying session has been changed from the 95th to the half marathon (20 km) from the previous 21.0975 km.

Initially, all participating schools were required to participate in the preliminary round and the top 15 schools participated in the main race, but the 32nd (1956), The number of participating schools was 15 or less, and all the schools participating in the qualifying round participated in the main race.33rd (1957), The rules have been changed, and seed rights have been given to the top 10 schools with overall results in the previous tournament, and only the top 5 schools in the qualifying round will participate in the main race from the qualifying round. ..48th (1972), The number of participation slots from the qualifying round will be 6 schools, and after the 79th (2003), the top 9 schools in the qualifying round will be able to participate in the main race. 10 schools participated in the main race).

From the 79th tournament to the 89th tournament, the incare point system was introduced.This is because in the qualifying session, the remaining number of participating schools excluding the seed school from the number of participating schools in this competition is first selected by 6 schools according to the time (Kanto Gakuren selection team was within 10th place in the previous competition). If you enter, select 7 schools), and the remaining 3 schools will be selected in combination with the point system based on the results of Kanto Incare that year.Specifically, based on the total time of the top 10 students from each school, the top 6 schools (10 schools if the Kanto Gakuren selection was within the 7th place in the previous tournament) passed the preliminary round, and the remaining 3 schools are Kanto student athletics. The ranking was decided by using the subtraction time based on the points (incare points) based on the results of the competition against school.Since the incarnation points reflect the results of the entire track and field club of the university, the efforts of the track and field club as a whole, not just the relay road race, affect the results.Since the main race has been widely treated by the TV media, there is a tendency for the light and dark to be divided by a narrow time when participating in the main race after breaking through the qualifying round.Especially in the 83rd tournament qualifying session, the time difference between Takushoku University in 10th place and Kokushikan University in 9th place, which missed the participation, was only 1 second including the incarnation point.

Kanto Student Union Team


With 10 universities that won seed rights in the previous year's competitionQualifyingIn addition to the total of 10 universities, 20 universities that passed the meetingKanto Student Union TeamWill participate (organization after the 2015st Tokyo Hakone Round-Trip University Ekiden Race in 91)[3][7].. The name was changed from "Kanto Gakuren Selection Team" to "Kanto Student Union Team" at the Kanto Gakuren Representative Committee General Assembly in February 2014.[3].

  • One person is selected from one school for the Kanto Student Union Team[3].
  • It is a requirement that the selected athletes participate in the qualifying session held in October and that the number of appearances in this tournament does not exceed 10 (applicable from the 2st tournament).[3].
  • Kanto Student Union Team is open participation[3]..The personal record itself is a valid record, but it is not ranked and serves as a reference record for both teams and individuals.[25][Note 7].

From the 79th (2003), participation of the Kanto Gakuren Selection Team was allowed, and until the 82nd (2006), only personal records were allowed as open participation.

The Japanese Gakuren Selection Team is allowed to participate in the commemorative tournament every five years on behalf of the Kanto Gakuren Selection Team (Article 5 of the internal regulations)[1]..Recently the 80th (2004) Specially selected team of Japanese studies[Note 8] Participated in the open participation.

The members of the Kanto Gakuren Selection Team, which has been allowed to participate since the 79th (2003), are the largest in each school from the players who belong to the teams that were rejected in the qualifying round and are ranked high in individual results. Selected within the frame of up to 2 people.In the 80th (2004), he participated as a Japanese academic consecutive selection, and achieved a result equivalent to 6th place, but in the case of the normal Kanto academic consecutive selection, it was often sluggish in the lower ranks.However, while students from each region other than Kanto, who have only the opportunity to participate as a Japanese Ekiden selection team, have been practicing to become members of the selection team from the beginning, in the case of the Kanto Gakuren selection team, they are members of their university. It is normal to have a desire to appear in the Hakone Ekiden, and it is also a fact that it is difficult to raise motivation even if it is convened as a selection team only two months after the shock of losing in the qualifying session. ..In addition, there is a deep-rooted sense of incongruity that teams with different tastes are mixed in the place of serious competition at each university.[26]..While there are opinions like this, it is very meaningful to bring the experience of the selected team back to the team and use it as a motivation for the next time, and the participating players said, "I will bring this experience back to my mother's school and make use of it next year." Some universities have won the qualifying round and won the final round in later years.

83rd (2007) Will officially record the time and ranking as a team, and if the Kanto Gakuren selection team is in the 10th place, the seed school will be 9 schools and 10 schools will be selected in the next qualifying session. In this case, 9 schools will be recommended for the Izumo All Japan University Ekiden Race (Izumo Ekiden) next year.As a result, overall level competition led to the improvement of the level of the schools participating in the qualifying session, and in the 84th (2008), the Kanto Gakuren selection was ranked 4th overall, and the following 85th (2009) was also 9th overall. He was ranked first and was in the seed range for two consecutive tournaments.By increasing the number of qualifying slots by one, the possibility of participating in Hakone the following year of the university to which you belong will increase, albeit slightly, so the existence value of the Kanto Gakuren selection will increase and the race ranking will be significant. became.Regarding the selection of Japanese academics who participated in the 2th (1), participation in the commemorative tournament every 80 years is permitted in Article 2004 of the internal regulations regarding the Tokyo Hakone Round-Trip University Ekiden Race. The 12th (5) is a commemorative tournament, but the Kanto Gakuren selection is participating as a selection team instead of the Japan Gakuren selection.

関東学連選抜チームについては、第86回(2010年)終了時から廃止・継続または新制度の導入などの議論を重ねた結果、2012年6月6日に行われた関東学連代表委員総会において、第89回(2013年)は現行どおり実施(ただし、各校から1名とし、16校から選出)、第90回(2014年)は不採用。第91回(2015年)以降は、廃止・継続のいずれの可能性も残し検討を重ねた[27] As a result, at the committee general meeting held on June 2013, 6, it was decided that the commemorative tournament would not be organized every five years as originally proposed, but would continue to be held after the 10st meeting.[28].

At the Kanto Gakuren Representative Committee General Assembly in February 2014, the "Kanto Gakuren Selection Team" was changed to the "Kanto Student Union Team" with open participation.[3].

  • What is important in this section is "connecting to the next" (passing the tasuki at the position where you can see the beginning).It is a section where many speed runners and quasi-ace classes are introduced, but when they are grouped together, they tend to slow down due to restraints and do not disperse so much.Therefore, the Tsurumi relay station is often flooded with a large number of athletes by a small margin.On the other hand, ace classes representing each school gather, and in order to get out even one second ahead of other schools, it may progress at a super high pace.Also, jump out immediately after the start and aim for escape (so-calledGreat escape) There are also schools, which is one of the sections where the tactics of each school appear.The only big ups and downs on the course are Shinyatsuyama Bridge and Rokugo Bridge.The bargaining between players in this area is also a sight to see.Especially in the section from Rokugo Bridge to Kawasaki City, there are many players who use the descent from the bridge to spurt.

It was a section).Each school fights with ace-class players "2 wards of flowersThe section that continues to be called.Within the sectionFifty-three Stations of the TokaidoKnown as the first difficult place after leaving EdoGontazaka[31] It can be said that it is a difficult section to run in terms of topography, such as the fact that there is.Universities that have international students often have international students enter this section.Not limited to Hakone, the 2nd ward is often cited as an important section that determines the subsequent flow, but since the ace-class players of each school have almost equal power, other than mistakes in pace distribution and accidents. For some reason, the difference is unlikely to widen, and the results of this section are rarely directly linked to the overall victory battle.From Tsurumi relay station via Yokohama stationHodogaya StationUp to, it is a flat course with almost no elevation difference, but from thereFifty-three Stations of the TokaidoIt was said to be the second most difficult place after crossing Hakone.Gontazaka(However, the slope of Gontazaka on National Highway No. 1 is gentler than that of Tokaido) and the remaining 3km slope in front of the Totsuka relay station (commonly known as ""Totsuka wall").The biggest point is how to overcome these difficult points in the latter half.There is often no difference to the Tsurumi relay station, and it is also a section where burdock removal and large braking occur frequently.It is said that the future flow will be decided depending on the result of the ace.Also, as you can see from the characteristics of the course, it is difficult to run in the topographical section, but if you increase the pace too much in the first half of the flat course, you may run out of power in the second half of Gontazaka and the relay station and stall.In order to get a good time, the point is how to leave some spare capacity on this climb, and the 75th (1999) Set a new section record at that timeNaoki IIIRan up the remaining 3km.

  • It is 20.9km from Hiratsuka relay station to Odawara relay station.[32].
    • Prior to the shortening of the section distance in 2006, the 4th ward was considered to be one of the ace sections, and at the time of the XNUMXth consecutive victoryKomazawa UniversityIn many cases, the absolute ace of the team was placed in the 4th ward.
    • From the 82nd (2006) to the 92nd (2016), it was 18.5km, which was the shortest section distance of less than 20km.At the 82nd (2006), the outbound Odawara relay station was changed to 2.5km closer to Tokyo (KazamatsuriSuzuhiroPrevious →Glasses supermarketIn front of the head office). Behind the shortening of the 4th ward is the intention of the Kanto Gakuren to "give players who are active in middle distance to the opportunity to participate in Hakone", and the 1nd in the first year of shortening is the 82m Japanese Incare champion as planned. IsYasunori Murakami(Juntendo University) won the section prize.However, 11.8km from Hiratsuka relay stationKofu Station前交差点まで細かいアップダウンが続き、距離のわりにスピードが出にくいため、4区よりも3区にスピードランナーを置く学校も多く、この区間はチームで10番手の選手や1年生を起用する傾向が強まっている。これらのことから、他の区間よりも区間距離が短い割に1kmに平均3分以上かけて走る選手がほとんどである。1km平均3分(55分30秒)を切って走った選手は計225名中21名(約9.3%)しかいない[When?].
    • From the 93rd (2017), the relay station will be in front of Suzuhiro again and the section distance will be 20.9km, which is the same as the course up to the 81st.[32].. For the 4th ward, the distance will be shortened after the 82nd tournament.marathonThe distance was extended again due to concerns about plucking the buds of athletes who could adapt to[32]..Due to this change in section distance, the records before the 93rd tournament became reference records.[32].
    • The upper team wants to keep the momentum up to the 3rd ward and widen the gap with the following to connect to the 5th ward, while the lower team wants to close the difference with the previous team in this section, so the 93rd After the course is extended, it has become an ace section where the team's ace is placed again.

    • The distance was extended from the 82nd (2006), and it was the longest 23.4km in all sections.
    • At the 91st tournament (2015), the section distance was changed to 23.2km.This is a course that will be closed from the 2014st tournament (2) due to the opening of the "Kanrei Tunnel Bypass", which detours the Kanrei Tunnel, which was the conventional passing point on February 7, 91. Is due to the change[33], Extended about 20 meters[34]..Along with this, the records before the 90th tournament became reference records.[6][33]..Due to the remeasurement of the distance performed in conjunction with the course change, the distance display is 200 meters shorter than before.
    • From the 93rd (2017), the relay station will be in front of Suzuhiro again and the section distance will be 20.8km.[32].. Regarding the 5th ward, due to the extension of the section distance after the 82nd tournament, there are many cases of hypothermia and hypoglycemia in the latter half of the run, and the burden on the athletes is regarded as a problem. It was pointed out that the degree of contribution was too large, so the distance was shortened again.[32]..Due to this section change, the records before the 92nd tournament became reference records.[32].

  • Commonly"Mountain climbIt is a very peculiar section that runs up an altitude difference of 864m.From Odawara Relay StationHakone Yumoto StationAlthough there is a slight uphill slope for about 3km before, because it is relatively flat, the force is preserved in the flat section at the beginning.Hakone Yumoto StationThe point is how to exert your strength on a full-scale uphill that starts from the front.Considerable leg strength and stamina are required, and course aptitude is most required.For this reason, specialists are often in charge, and the "number of athletes running in the same section for four consecutive years" is the highest among all sections (4 people).Because of the special section, it is easy to make a big difference in individual results, and there are frequent big reversals that make up for the big difference of several minutes that was reached by the end of the 37th ward only in the 4th ward.Since the 5rd time when the seed system was introduced, the university that won the section prize in the 33th ward missed the seed right in the 5th (80) Japanese studies where only personal records were valid as reference records. Excluding the consecutive selection, there are only 2004 cases of the 39th, 41st, 60th, 77th, and 92nd.In particular, after the 5nd (82) distance extension, the outbound victory was never won depending on the results in the 2006th ward, and from the 5nd to the 82nd (92), the section prize was won in the 2016th ward. Only the 5nd Nihon University was unable to win the outbound route (the outbound victory of the year, Daichi Kamino of Aoyama Gakuin University was second in the section).Although it is a section where mountain climbing is attracting attention, on the contrary, it is said that the remaining 92km descent after passing the highest point is the game.In fact, the muscles used for going up and down are different, so it is not suitable for them, and the load on the muscles suddenly changes drastically, so some athletes stop with convulsions on the descent due to the cold weather.
  • Wards 5 and 6 run in the mountains where the temperature is very low.Because there is a temperature difference from the flat ground, some athletes running in the 5th and 6th wardsTank topInstead, it is not uncommon to wear sleeved uniforms and arm warmers.

  • It is 20.8km from Lake Ashi to Odawara relay station.[6].. As of February 2014, 2, the Kanrei Tunnel, which used to be a passing point, was closed to traffic, and the course was changed from the 7st tournament (91) to the Kanrei Tunnel Bypass.[33], Extended about 20 meters[34]..Along with this, the records of the 90 wards before the 6th tournament became reference records.[6][33].
  • The return trip departs from Lake Ashi, the goal point of the outbound trip (for how to start the return trip)#Start of return tripSee).
  • "Mountain descentThe average speed on the descent reaches 25km / h, and it puts a heavy burden on the knees because it goes around many curves with a small radius at this high speed.It is said that the almost flat road (with a slight downward slope) of the remaining 3km from the front of Hakone-Yumoto Station feels uphill for the athletes, and it may be possible to make a difference of 1 minute or more from here.Under these circumstances, it was considered to extend the distance of the 5th ward and shorten the distance of the 6th ward at the same time, but it was postponed due to problems with the relay station.
  • "The number of athletes running in the same section for 4 consecutive years" is the second highest after the 5th ward (33 people), the highest on the return trip. The third ward, 3nd ward, is less than half of this, showing the peculiarity of going up and down the mountain.
  • The temperature is low, partly because it starts from the highlands around 8 am, and it is not uncommon for snow to fall in the mountains.Most athletes wear long-sleeved shirt uniforms to prevent their body temperature from dropping, or use arm warmers with T-shirts to regulate their body temperature.
  • Depending on the weather conditions the night before, the road surface may freeze and become slippery.As a result, there are often cases where players fall on the way downhill.
  • At the Kowakidani railroad crossing of the Hakone Tozan Railway, when athletes pass by, staff members take measures to temporarily stop the train just before the railroad crossing (as in the outbound route).#Overview and driving methodSee the rules for railroad crossings in).
  • Since this section has only one lane on each side and it is difficult for the operation management vehicle to accompany it, we waited at the base provided in the Hakone Town Hall parking lot.Hakone Yumoto StationJoin the course in the vicinity.

  • It is 21.3km from Odawara relay station to Hiratsuka relay station.[6].
  • On the outbound route (4th ward), go straight after passing the Hiratsuka relay station and pass the course along the sea, while on the return route (7th ward), after passing the Oiso station entrance intersection, pass the land-side course, so the 4th ward The distance is slightly longer than.
  • It is said to be the easiest section to run among the 10 sections, but there are small ups and downs in the first half.In addition, although it is initially cooled by the cold air blown down from the mountain, the temperature rises as the sun rises, making it the section with the largest temperature difference.[35]..Therefore, we would like to be careful about large temperature fluctuations when going out of the mountains to the sea.In the past, as a so-called "connecting section", there were many cases where players with not so high running ability were placed among the 10 players, but in recent years, for universities competing for victory, how powerful players can be placed in the 7th ward. Is the key.

  • The first half is flat and easy to run, but when you cross Fujisawa, it is commonly known as "Yugyoji TempleA tough course where "Nozaka" awaits.The key to reversing and acquiring seed rights is how powerful runners can be placed here.
  • In this section, if the sunlight is strong, dehydration is likely to occur near the slope of Yukoji Temple.Crying in the second half of the accident and missing the victory, the worstAbstentionSome teams drank tears.If you apply the brakes here, it may have a big effect on the latter two sections, so it can be said that physical condition management is also an important section.

  • "Ace section on the return trip, "For the 2nd ward of flowers" in the 2nd ward of the outbound route9 wards of pineIt is also said.Captains or quasi-ace classes from each school often gather.The first half is mainly downhill such as Gontazaka, and the layout is almost flat after Hodogaya station in the second half, but it is a long section, so it is necessary to distribute the pace properly.
  • Perhaps because of the convenience of transportation, a large number of Ekiden fans flock to Yokohama Station every year.
  • The Tsurumi relay station on the return route is the most prone to advance start among all relay stations, and unlike other relay stations, there is a straight line of about 160 meters from the entrance to the relay zone.For this reason, the runners in the 9th ward started moving forward in front of the runners in the 10th ward, and they could not connect the tasuki, and we could see many tears.
  • The results in this section have a great influence on the overall results.In fact, there are many reversals in this section, and in recent years the 75th (1999) Juntendo University, the 79th (2003) and 84th (2008) Komazawa University, the 82nd (2006). Asia University has succeeded in reversing in the 9th ward and achieved the overall victory.

  • Unlike the 1st ward, the route is from Baba-Senmon via Nihonbashi.The course has been via Nihonbashi since the 75th (1999), and the section has been extended by 1.7km at that time.The entire course is almost flat except for the ups and downs near Rokugo Bridge and Shinyatsuyama Bridge, but sometimes building winds hit the players.
  • This is the final section and the number of spectators along the road will increase, which will put more pressure on the section.Since the 75th (1999), each team has been assigned a quasi-ace class with the extension of the distance, and it is becoming a section where the thickness of the player layer is questioned.in recent yearsTetsuya Yoroizaka(Meiji University),Takehiro DekiIn some cases, players such as (Aoyama Gakuin University) who are the absolute ace of the team but are not in perfect condition are appointed to avoid the ace section.

Competition method

Tokyo Hakone Round-Trip University Ekiden Race Competition Guidelines and Tokyo Hakone Round-Trip University Ekiden are based on Chapter 5 "Detailed Competition Regulations" Articles 15-21.[42].

Overview and driving method

  • Each competitor is limited to one section (Article 1, Paragraph 15 of the Internal Regulations)[1]..Athletes are said to be disqualified for any reason during the competition for any reason, but it does not help if the competition medical staff touches the athlete's body for palpation (internal rules). Article 15 Paragraph 4)[1]..Naturally, the use of prohibited drugs is strictly prohibited (Article 15, Paragraph 5 of the Internal Regulations).[1], There are provisions regarding doping tests, etc. in the guidelines of the competition[42].
  • Water is supplied in each section of the outbound and inbound routes except for the 1st and 6th wards, but the selection and implementation method of the water supply location is set by the Ekiden Countermeasures Committee (Article 15, Paragraph 6 of the Internal Regulations).[1]..The water supply location (water supply point) for each section was established in recent years after discussions between teams regarding the need for water supply.HowevermarathonUnlike the water supply that is done at such places, instead of taking bottles placed on the table, members of each team or university officials authorized by each team hand over the bottles while running along.Not necessarily limited to members of the long-distance division, the outbound trip in 2013 was a javelin thrower at Waseda University.Fine deanHowever, in 2020, he will be a racewalker at Toyo University.Masatora KawanoServed as a water supply staff[43]..Water supply procedure[44] According to the organizer, water and sports drinks prepared by the organizer will be used, and athletes can drink either or both.Bottle is co-sponsoringPokka Sapporo Food & BeverageIs used (Vittel-> Vatvillere-> clean water at the foot of Mt. Fuji).Previously, the director was allowed to supply water up to two times, which was voluntary, but it was banned from the 2st tournament in 2015 because the water supply method may conflict with the Road Traffic Act.
  • Blocking and closing at railroad crossings is force majeure, but the umpire keeps time and during that timeLoss timeWill not be included in the time required for the competitor (Article 15, Paragraph 7 of the Internal Regulations)[1]..In fact, in recent years, trains have been temporarily stopped and timetables have been adjusted due to the consideration of railway companies. Due to the elevated Keikyu Kamata No. 2012 railroad crossing in 89, the railroad crossings that have existed on the raceway since the 2013th (XNUMX)Hakone Tozan RailwayOnly the Kowakidani railroad crossing.
    • Tokaido railroad crossing (JRTokaido Line-Yokosuka Line..Known asTotsuka Great Railroad..(Currently abolished) --In the past, a course was set up that passes through the Tokaido railroad crossing (Totsuka Dai railroad crossing) on ​​the Tokaido and Yokosuka lines near the Totsuka relay station.Railroad crossing without openingTherefore, depending on the situation, I was forced to get stuck for a long time.[45]..At that time, the time loss due to stalling at railroad crossings was not calculated, and athletes who had boiled their work sometimes slipped through the gaps of freight trains stuck on railroad crossings, or broke through railroad crossings in anticipation of the intervals when trains did not come. ..In the 20th (1939), it precedesSenshu UniversityWas chasing afterNihon UniversityHowever, there was a case where he missed the championship due to the stalemate here, and the player who experienced this time loss recalled, "I have not been on the Yokosuka Line since that time."But,1953Was the prime minister at that timeYoshida ShigeruWas angry at the traffic jam in this section when he came to Tokyo from Oiso's private residence, and a bypass was built, which also reset the Hakone Ekiden course to the bypass side, and as a result, the stalemate due to railroad crossing blockage was resolved. became[46](For bypassTotsuka RoadSee also).In addition, about Totsuka railroad crossing20153/25ToUnderpassWas abolished due to the opening of[47].

Since the 2007rd in 83, trains have been departed by Keikyu employees.Substitute hand signalMeasures such as being permitted by[Note 9]..In the 84th (2008), an accident occurred in which a Tokai University player stumbled on a railroad crossing and hurt his leg, and then abstained after 20km.afterwards,20105/16Since the up line was elevated in advance, the temporary timetable was changed significantly, and it became possible to suspend the use of the railroad crossing while the players were passing.Then on October 2012, 10Multi-level crossingWith the completion of the conversion project, the Kamata No. 89 railroad crossing was abolished, and after the 2013th (XNUMX), there was no railroad crossing at that point.[48].
    • Kowakidani railroad crossing (Hakone Tozan Railway Railway Line)- Kowakidani StationIt is located on the side course (5th ward on the outbound route and 6th ward on the inbound route), and now the Hakone Tozan Railway staff is on standby during the time when the athletes pass, and measures are taken to stop the train before the railroad crossing when the athletes pass.[49]..In the past, the Ekiden platoon was caught at the railroad crossing of the Hakone Tozan Railway in Mt. Hakone, and there was a happening in which the athletes were forced to go first and the related vehicles chased afterwards.Recently, it is becoming more common to follow players from behind by broadcasting with a motorcycle camera, but at the time of this happening, a large OB van, which is usually shot from the front of the player, broadcasts the rear view of the player. It became a situation where a rare video was broadcast.After the 89th (2013), the Kowakidani railroad crossing became the only railroad crossing on the course.
  • As a general rule, the time lost when the referee stops running due to special circumstances is not included in the time required for the competitor, but the referee will also time the time in this case (Article 15, Paragraph 8 of the Internal Regulations).[1].
    • 2001 Hakone EkidenThen, at the start of the return trip, it was changed to ring the pistol at the start even for the teams in 2nd place and below.However, probably because the work of repacking the pistol was not in time, there was a happening that Hosei University in 3rd place started 25 seconds later than the original time, and the record of Hosei University this year does not include this 25 seconds. (Taking this as a lesson, from the next year's Hakone Ekiden, the second and lower ranks have returned to the start with a hand flag).

Clothes, number card, tasuki

  • The clothing (running shirts, running pants, training shirts, etc.) of each participating athlete should be the same for each team, and the number cards designated by the tournament headquarters should be attached to the chest and back. Is allowed to be worn by each athlete's school (Article 16, Paragraph 1 of the Internal Regulations)[1]..Some universities changed their uniforms for the purpose of public relations from the beginning of the TV broadcast.Traditional schools that have participated since before the war often have one-letter uniforms on their chests (Waseda University's "W", Chuo University's "C", etc.), and emerging schools often write their school names in Chinese characters.In addition, universities that made their first appearance after the start of broadcasting on NTV tend to wear uniforms with flashy colors.
  • Regarding the tasuki, one of the two tasukis unique to each team submitted to the federation in advance will be relayed, and the remaining one will be kept by the tournament headquarters (Article 2, Paragraph 1 of the Internal Regulations).[1]..In addition, the teams that depart early will use the yellow and white striped tasuki prepared at the tournament headquarters, but for the 5th and 10th wards, each school is unique to each team submitted to the federation in advance. Use a tasuki (Article 16, Paragraph 3 of the internal regulations)[1]..The color of the carry-up tasuki has changed to a two-tone color of white and yellow because it looks like the color of the tasuki of Waseda University.

Abstention on the way

Even if the competitor has difficulty running due to injury or illness during the competition and moves to walk, stop, lie down, etc., and the athlete still intends to continue the competition, the competition management committee member who rides in the operation management vehicle. The competition may be canceled by the agreement of the track manager, the manager or the coach (Article 17, Paragraph 1 of the Internal Regulations).[1]..The notice of cancellation of the competition is given by the competition management committee of the competition raising a red flag to the runner.[50].

If the competitor becomes difficult to run and the competition is canceled or abstained, the record up to the previous section of the section is officially accepted, but from the next section, the run itself is allowed after the start as an open participation, but the record is Not officially recognized (Article 17, Paragraph 2 of the Internal Regulations)[1].

  • There were only three abstentions in the more than 1970 tournaments held until the 50s.However, since Juntendo University abstained for the first time in 3 years in the 71st (1995), a total of 19 abstentions have occurred in the 90 years up to the 20th.In the last 12 years, multiple schools have abstained from the same tournament three times.However, since the 20st (3), no abstention has occurred.
  • The largest number of abstaining schools in the same tournament was the 3th (Juntendo University, Daito Bunka University, Tokai University) where three schools abstained.In addition, two schools abstained at the 84nd (Kanagawa University, Yamanashi Gakuin University) and 72th (Josai University, Chuo University).
  • There have been two abstentions due to multiple schools in the same section of the same tournament, the 72nd (4th ward, Kanagawa University and Yamanashi Gakuin University) and the 89th (5th ward, Josai University and Chuo University). There is.
  • 過去2度の途中棄権をしている大学は、順天堂大(第71回、第84回)、東海大(第77回、第84回)、城西大(第85回、第89回)、山梨学院大(第72回、第90回)の4校である。
  • Of the 11 abstentions that have occurred in total so far, there have been four cases of abstentions for two consecutive years since the 71st (2st and 4nd).(2 school), 77th and 78th, 84th(3 school)And 85th, 89th(2 school)And the 90th).
  • Regarding early abstentions, Tokai University abstained at the 77th meeting, Hosei University at the 78th meeting the following year, and Yamanashi Gakuin University abstaining at the 90th meeting in the second ward.The shortest distance abstention was the 2th Hosei University, which was abstained after 2km in District 7.3.
  • Regarding the abstention on the way near the goal, the 84th Juntendo University abstained at the point of 5m remaining to the Ashinoko goal in the 500th ward on the outbound route.On the return trip, the 52nd Aoyama Gakuin University abstained from the goal of the 10th ward with 150m remaining.
  • The abstention by the winning school in the previous year has occurred twice so far.The 2nd Yamanashi Gakuin University and the 72th Juntendo University.
  • The sections with the most abstentions so far are the 3nd, 2th and 5th wards where the past 10 teams have abstained.On the other hand, the 1st, 6th and 7th wards have not yet abstained.
  • Universities that abstain on the way will be treated as open participants in the subsequent sections, but there have been two cases in which the time was recorded in the section after the abstention, although it was a reference record, exceeding the official record of the first place in the section.Josai University in the 1th 2th ward (abstained in the 85th ward on the return trip) and Chuo University in the 9th ward 8 (abstained in the 89th ward on the outbound route), but in both cases the section prize is treated as a reference record. did not become.However, in the past, personal records and some team records (only team records on the return trip if abstaining on the outbound trip) have been officially recognized.The 8nd Kanagawa University in the 5th and 72th wards (abstained in the 7th ward on the outbound route) and Yamanashi Gakuin University in the 9th ward (abstained in the 4th ward on the outbound route) have won the section prize in the section after the abstention.
  • If you abstain in the middle of a ward other than the 5th and 10th wards, the start time of the next section will be treated in the same way as the advance start according to the rules of the tournament, but in consideration of traffic conditions, the start time will be accelerated by the decision of the chief referee. In some cases.When Kanagawa University and Yamanashi Gakuin University abstained in the 72nd 4th ward, it will start 1 minutes behind Waseda University, which originally passed the Odawara relay station in 20st place, but considering traffic congestion, The last (13th) Toyo University started the Tasuki Relay 1 minute after 10 minutes and 03 seconds from the 1st place, and both schools started all at once.When Hosei University abstained in the second ward of the 78th, it started 2 minutes behind Yamanashi Gakuin University, which originally passed the Totsuka relay station in 1st place, but Tokai University, the lowest (10th place), It started at the same time as the Tasuki relay was performed 14 minutes and 1 seconds after the 4st place.
  • Although it does not lead to abstention, there are cases of braking due to breakdowns and poor physical condition every year.Due to the characteristics of the Ekiden, which is a team competition, even if you are sick or have a breakdown, the athlete tries to continue running because he wants to connect the tasuki, and the manager also abstains. There is a tendency to be good or bad[51]..In this case, there are some aspects that cannot be stopped as a commander, but in some cases it may affect the life of the athlete, so it is an important issue to decide whether to abstain on the way.
  • In order to avoid abstention, there are measures such as excluding players in poor condition from entry and replacing them with substitute players at the time of section entry.In addition, since the 20th (79), when the number of entries has increased to 2003 teams, consideration has been given to giving room to team management until the actual performance.However, even if there is insufficient coordination or poor physical condition just before the actual performance, if the player has recorded good results or is the organizer of the team, he tends to feel a strong responsibility and the manager. Even so, there are still some cases where the team is forced to participate in consideration of the team situation, and the abstention has not been resolved on the way. There are some cases where players cannot be replaced even though they complain after the entry deadline, such as the players in the 2012th ward of Tokyo University of Agriculture in the 88 (5th) tournament.From the middle stage onward, the speed slowed down to the pace of jogging, but he completed the race about 1 minutes after finishing in 40st place.
  • Especially in recent yearsDehydrationThere is a tendency for more cases to abstain or stop due to abstention.

Pinch runner (rerun)

Although it does not exist under the current rules, in the past records, it can be confirmed that a substitute runner is performing a "pinch runner (rerun)" when a regular player becomes unable to run.This is because the rule at that time was "If you cannot run, you will not be abstained on the way, and you will have to run again from the beginning of the relevant section as a substitute runner and the record will remain."[52] It depends on what was.In this case, there is a document that allows you to confirm the description of multiple player names for the same section.Five such "pinch runners (rerunners)" have been confirmed in the past records.

How to relay Tasuki

The tasuki is to be handed over to the next runner within 20m in the direction of travel of the relay line after the previous runner has completely passed the predetermined relay line (Article 18, Paragraph 2 of the internal regulations).[1].

Advance departure (advance start)

The team that was 10 minutes behind the lead runner for the outbound Tsurumi / Totsuka relay station, the team that was 15 minutes behind the lead runner for the outbound Hiratsuka / Odawara relay station, and the team that was 20 minutes behind the lead runner for all the return trips. In order not to prolong the time for traffic regulation, the team will start the next runner even if the previous runner does not arrive at the ruling of the chief referee of each relay station (Article 19 of the internal regulations).[1][53]. this"Advance departure"[1](In the press, "Advance start"It is said that).

As with other relay road races that employ advance departure, when a team starts advance, the runner puts on a tasuki called "advance tasuki".In the case of Hakone Ekiden, according to Article 16 (3) of the internal regulations, the teams that depart early will use the yellow and white striped tasuki prepared at the tournament headquarters in the 2nd to 4th wards and 7th to 9th wards. Become[1][Note 10]..Therefore, it is said that for the athletes who had been running until then, it was the moment when the regret that the tasuki of their school was not connected to the whole section oozes out, and in fact, it was broadcast on NTV."Remorse advance"Is also used.At the same time, participating schools are required to maintain a high level of competition at all relay stations to avoid advancement.

When an advance departure is made, the ranking in which each team is running (apparent ranking) may differ from the actual ranking, so the overall ranking of the teams is the apparent time plus the time difference for the advance. It is calculated.In addition, the ranking in the TV broadcast is displayed after the time difference due to the early departure is converted.

Due to these circumstances, in the case of a team that started in advance, there are cases where even if the team first finishes in the running order, if the time difference for the advance is added, it will not be a total victory.


Start of return trip

For the start of the return trip, universities within 1 minutes from the 10st place will depart at a staggered time, and all other universities will depart at the same time 1 minutes after the start of the 10st place school (Article 20 of the internal regulations).[1]..In other words, the university that reached the goal of the outbound route more than 1 minutes from the 10st place was 3:8 am on the return route on the 10rd (JST) Will be launched at the same time (reported as "return route simultaneous start", "advanced simultaneous start", etc.).

Even when simultaneous departures are made, the time difference for the advance is added to the apparent time as in the case of advance departure.However, in the case of simultaneous departure, the tasuki connected from the outbound route is not interrupted, so expressions such as "remorse" are rarely used.

It is argued that the start of the return trip should be 10 minutes instead of 20 minutes, but it is difficult due to traffic restrictions.

Ranking at the same time

When the finish order of goals does not show the grade ranking due to early departure etc., the ranking of the same time school is determined by the number of top performers in the section, first compare with the number of the first place in the section, and if the number is the same, the section Compare the numbers while lowering the number of 1nd place one by one, and the higher the number, the higher the ranking (Article 2 of the internal regulations).[1].

Even with this method, if there are multiple schools with the same time, they will all be treated as the same rank, and if there are multiple schools with the same time in 10th place, they will all be given the seed right for the next year as the 10th place (Internal Regulations No. 21). Article XNUMX)[1].


The reason why Hakone Ekiden was conceived1919January,Shinzo KanaguriWas invited as a referee to an elementary school athletic meet held in Konosu, Saitama Prefecture.On the way back, Kanaguri was a junior of two track and field athletes (also invited as referees), Tokyo Higher Normal School.Gensaburo NoguchiHe talked that he was a student at Meiji University.Based on the fact that Eiichi Sawada had completed a run between Sapporo and Tokyo in June of that year with his alumni, the three of them attracted the attention of the world and trained long-distance runners in Japan. I wondered if I could run a long distance in Sapporo.The conclusion at this time was the "Transcontinental Ekiden".It was planned to hold a relay race in Japan as a "qualifying event".In anticipation of running through the Rocky Mountains, which will be the biggest barrier on the transcontinental course, the course selected for this "qualifying session" was between Tokyo and Hakone, which includes mountain crossing.Kanaguri and his colleagues traveled to universities and newspapers to appeal for participation and cooperation, and managed to manage while struggling with money measures.19202/14I managed to carry out the 1st Hakone Ekiden.

In this way, the history of Hakone Ekiden began, but the essential "transcontinental relay road race" was not realized.Meiji University's Deguchi Hayashijiro and Waseda University spared no effort in implementing the Hakone Ekiden.Junichi ShimbunI visited and asked for cooperation in the plan again, but I got only the answer that it was difficult to realize.Two people do not give upMainichi ShimbunFor research with funding1922I went to America.In the end, the story of the "Transcontinental Ekiden" was abandoned.Then the exitCornell UniversityI learned from this and decided to teach at my alma mater, Meiji University.However, Ikuta is in his fifth year in the United States.1927He died sideways in Mexico because he was in trouble over his business.Depending on the material, it may be written that "the plan for the cross-American relay road race was completed because the student who went to the United States was murdered", but in reality the plan failed early and due to Ikuta's death. The relay road race plan was not canceled[54].

There is another theory.Hakone Ekiden is a post-horse race system that used to transfer documents and information between post stations.HikyakuBased on (the current postal delivery system), a tasuki that looks like a letter is sent from Tokyo.Tokaido OfYado StationThere was Tsurumi (Kawasaki lodging), Totsuka (Totsuka), Hiratsuka (Hiratsuka), Odawara (Odawara-juku), Hakonemachi Post Office (Hakone Sekisyo(Hakone Checking station)), And there is a theory that it was held as a university competition event to compete for the speed of returning to Tokyo.[55]..The purpose is to attract tourists in winter when the number of tourists decreases due to cold and snow, and it is said that it was held for two days to increase the number of guests.The outbound goal points from the 1st to the 12th were the remains of Hakone Sekisho, and the goal points were the Hakone Town Post Office from the 22th to the 13th except for the 44nd (Hakone Shrine).[56][57].

In the early days, the dates were not fixed as they are today.Also"The main part of the student is studyingFor that reason, I sometimes started in the afternoon after class in the morning.[58]..Because of this, it was sunset in the middle of the race, and the players in the 5th ward had to run in the dark, but in reality it was local.Youth groupMembers ofTorchesI got nothing because I ran along with[59].

Initially, only the start and goal were decided for the 5 wards of mountain climbing, and the participating schools wanted to take the shortest route in Hakone mountains as much as possible.However, as mentioned above, the local residents who were worried about the players cooperated with them by carrying a torch, so in the end there was no team to take a shortcut, and all the teams finished running safely.However, it is said that some players clung to the trees on the side of the road and cried because of the pain of climbing the mountain.

At the 1925th tournament in 6, Nihon University received a tasuki instead of a playerRickshaw husbandAlthough he showed four people out because he ran, he had to decline the participation the following year (Human rickshaw case)[60].

Laboratory studentThe criteria for disqualification were also ambiguous, such as being disqualified due to double registration in the participation of the player, and not being disqualified even though the person concerned dragged the player who fainted just before the goal to the line.[61]..The books related to Hakone Ekiden often show all the results of the participating schools, but there are some universities that are actually disqualified although they have official rankings.In this way, there are some differences in the past results depending on the materials.

Primary caucus

Student staff

The tournament is supported by member schools that are members of the Kanto Gakuren.Students have been appointed as runner staff along the road, keeping the student-centered attitude since the foundation.

A university that sends a large number of first graders as staff in addition to the players of the team participating in the Hakone Ekiden, the members other than the attendants, the players of the team that was rejected in the qualifying session,Track & fieldA large number of staff have been dispatched from the universities of the large households that also hold them, and in the pastSugo Shingo,Large endAlso joined the staff as a runway member.

Efforts of participating teams-Flow of one year-

  • Until around MarchHalf marathonSuch as(English edition)There are many players who are stimulated by going out.Over time, speed practice will be introduced little by little, but it is said that sudden changes in practice tend to cause muscle strain.In recent years, some universities have set up training camps during this period.
  • A new 4st grade member joined the club in April.Spring goal is mid-MayKanto Student Athletics vs. School Championship(Kanto Incare).Since there is a standard record for participation and the number of entries for each event is limited, it is necessary to break the standard record at record meetings held at each university until then.Nippon Sport Science University, Tokai University, Juntendo University, etc. are famous for long-distance record meetings held in the university, and Hakone participating universities, some business team players, and high school students also participate (this standard record must also be within the expiration date) Don't do it. It seems that it's usually about the last two years).Kanto Incare Boys are divided into 2st and 1nd departments (and 2rd departments of graduate students), and the lower 3 schools of the 1st division and the upper 2 schools of the 2nd division are replaced every year, but only long-distance members. There are many universities in Japan, and it is difficult to obtain comprehensive points, so it is not always the case that the strongest schools are in the first division.
  • In mid-JuneAll Japan University Ekiden Kanto Area Selection CommitteeIs held, and many universities except Seed School meet.
  • In the case of some top athletes, they may run with business team athletes aiming to participate in the World Championships in Athletics and the Olympic Games.In recent years, some players have participated in overseas expeditions by Kanto Gakuren.
  • There is a time lag depending on the university,testThe summer camp will start from the end of July.There are also places where long-term training camps are organized, and places where the practice location is changed in several times.In addition, there are places where groups A and B are divided according to the player's condition and performed in completely different places, and the practice style is also different.However, it is not uncommon for the distance to exceed 7km per month, and it is characterized by thorough running.The location of the training campHokkaido,Tohoku region,NaganoThere are many highlands and summer resorts.In addition, players who participate in the above-mentioned world championships often leave the team and have a different menu. In the case of 4th gradejob hunting,Graduation thesisWe are doing it in parallel with.AlsoTeacher licenseIn the case of athletes who take, after summer or autumnTeaching practiceI often leave the team because ofconditionIt's not easy to make.
  • In early MarchJapan Student Track and Field Championships(Japan Incare) will be held.The hurdle to participate is even higher than Kanto Incare.However, the university in Kanto, which has the biggest goal of Hakone Ekiden, attaches great importance to running in the summer training camp and does not match the peak to this tournament.[73]..As a result, only members with a lower level than Kanto Incare may gather, and it is mentioned as the brunt of criticism that leads to the overweight of Ekiden, which will be described later.
  • In the second half of the year, the styles of each university are divided into those that rarely appear in record meetings, those that aim to break through the qualifying session, and those that aim for Izumo Ekiden and All Japan University Ekiden.Especially in the relay road race, inexperienced people are used as trials, and various orders are tried. From around September, there will be frequent record meetings again.
  • For universities in qualifying, they have to reach their peak by mid-October.Since breaking through the qualifying session is the highest priority, preparations for the actual performance (especially the mountain sections in the 10th and 5th wards) tend to be delayed.
  • There are also places where short-term training camps are organized after the All Japan University Ekiden.As a candidateizu-Oshima,Boso PeninsulaThere are warm places such as.
  • Half marathons and record meetings held in various places in late November are often the stage for member selection.Aside from the ace class, this is a crucial moment for the players on the hit line.As many universities meet together, the power relationship between the universities gradually emerges.The top schools in the player record here are often featured as high-ranking schools in "Shimouma criticism" such as sports newspapers.
  • 12/10(The 82nd is2005By December 12th), the participating schools (teams) will submit entries of up to 9 students to the Kanto Gakuren.This maximum of 16 players are the players who got the right to participate in the Hakone Ekiden.I can say.Other players spend their time behind the scenes, such as attending.In addition, from the afternoon of the day of the participating schooldirected by-coachとmanagerHolds a press conference for the media.
  • 12/29Up to 16 people who entered inSection entryI do. 16 people are divided into 10 people and the remaining number of people, and 10 people are registered as substitute players for each section from 1st ward to 10th ward.Details of the section entry will be described later.

Mountain god

"Yama-no-Kami" is a title that praises the players who are in charge of 10 wards including the mountain climbing section of Hakone among all 5 wards, and who have achieved particularly excellent results and made a strong impression on people's memories.[74]..Currently, three players are called "mountain gods".

  • Masato Imai(Juntendo University, 2005-2007)
    The 2st tournament in which I participated in the second grade (2005), Imai, who was in charge of the 5th ward, achieved a record of 11 people out of the mountain and set a new section record.[74]..The origin of "Yama-no-Kami" is that the live announcer said "Yama-no-Kami, advent here" before this rush, and Nippon Sport Science University, which was in charge of the same 5 wards at that time,Satoru KitamuraIt all started when he said, "Mr. Imai is like a god."Imai will continue to be in charge of the 5th ward. After being constantly introduced by the word "Yama-no-Kami, Imai", he won the section award for the third consecutive year, contributing to the outbound victory in the third year and the overall victory in the fourth year.[74].
  • Ryuji Kashihara(Toyo University, 2009-2012)
    The 1st tournament in which I participated in the second grade (2009), Kashiwabara, who was in charge of the 5th ward, set a new section record that broke Imai's record.At that time, the live announcer said, "A mountain prodigy that surpasses the mountain god is born here."Furthermore, the 86th (2010), After receiving a tasuki in 7th place, he shortened his self-record by 10 seconds and showed a fast run of 2 minutes 3 seconds behind 38nd place, and was called "New Yama-no-Kami".On paper, it was also called "Ryujin" after its name and Lake Ashi in Hakone.After that, the 87th tournament (2011), 88th Tournament (2012) And in charge of 4 wards for all 5 years, especially at the 88th tournament, he contributed to the overall victory of Toyo University as well as breaking his own section record.[74]..By the way, both Imai and KashiwabaraFukushima OfHamadoriLocal (Imai isMinamisoma City, KashiwabaraIwaki) Is from.
  • Daichi Jinno(Aoyama Gakuin University, 2015-2016)
    The 3st tournament in which I participated in the second grade (2015), Kamino, who was in charge of the 5th ward, ran a new course that was extended by 20m due to the course change as mentioned above, and set a new section record that updated the record of Kashiwabara, which was treated as a reference record, for 24 seconds. .. Called the 3rd generation "Mountain God"[75][76][77][78]Became the driving force behind Aoyama Gakuin University's first overall victory (complete victory)[74]..Kashiwabara, who was a commentator on the radio broadcast at that time, also said, "I'm sorry for your role."[79]..The 92nd tournament of the following year (2016) But he was in charge of the 5th ward and recorded the 2nd place in the section. Contributed to the overall victory that passed the 1st place in all of the 10st to 1th wards[74].

In addition, sports writerJun IkushimaIs the "Original Mountain God"1974Won the section prize of 4 wards for 5 consecutive years fromHatsuo Okubo(Daito Bunka University), And to the "mountain god" before ImaiMasahito UedaAnd Tetsuhiko Kin (Tetsuhiko Kin) Is listed[80].

Bowing to the course

Some runners bow to the course after handing the tasuki to the next runner.This is a custom that has been practiced since before the war as an act of showing gratitude for being able to participate in the Hakone Ekiden and running safely.[Note 17]..In the past, it was a personal act and was not done by the team as a whole, but in the 85th (2009)Toyo UniversityWhen he won the championship, he was able to participate due to the consideration of the people concerned despite the scandal by the former member in the previous year, and he refrained from raising his body as a thank you to all the spectators who cheered warmly along the road. It was done instead.Even when Toyo University won the 86th (2010) and 88th (2012) overall victory, before raising the body, the coach, coach, and players all thanked the course before raising the body.[Note 18].

Super speed


In subsequent competitions, speeding up has further evolved, and the total time of Toyo University, which won the 88th (2012), was in the 8 hours 10 minutes range, which broke the record of Waseda University in the previous year by more than 51 minutes. Even with the mountain climbing in the 5th ward (although Kashiwabara ran), it was an amazing time that the 1km lap of the entire section was less than 3 minutes. 4th place Waseda University also finished in the low 11 hours and 3 minutes range, and it is becoming necessary to have the ability to take less than 11 hours to compete for the championship.In the 91st (2015), the winning Aoyama Gakuin University finished in the 10 hours 50 minutes range, which is less than 10 hours 49 minutes for the first time.

In the 96th (2020), a new section record was set in 1 sections excluding the 8st, 9th, and 7th wards, and all teams scored less than 5 hours and 40 minutes on the outbound route.In the total time, Aoyama Gakuin University and Tokai University recorded a time of less than 10 hours and 50 minutes.Even on the return trip, all teams scored less than 5 hours and 40 minutes.In addition, for the first time in history, the top 10 schools with seed rights have all recorded less than 11 hours.Then, in the 98th (2022), there was a case where Tokai University could not acquire the seed right despite the total time of less than 11 hours.By the way, since 2010, the overall championship time has exceeded 11 hours only in the 89th tournament, which was hit by strong winds, and the 4rd tournament, in which the distance between the 5th and 93th wards was revised again.Only those two tournaments have exceeded 5 hours and 30 minutes for the outbound and inbound championships.

As a factor of the speedup after the 2010s, as a result of each university focusing on scouting and training of athletes, the athletes became thicker and the level of competition for victory became extremely high.NikeThis is because high-performance running shoes such as platform shoes have become widespread, making it easier to break records.

For universities aiming to win the championship, the concept of "connecting section" is disappearing, and all sections are being positioned as "important sections" and "ace sections", and how powerful athletes are in a perfect position. The key is to be able to run.

On the other hand, for lower-ranking universities that cannot keep up with the high pace, the risk of early start is extremely high, and the focus is on how to reduce the time difference and connect the tasuki of the alma mater.In fact, in the 88th and 90th to 95th tournaments, where speeding up became noticeable, more than 7 teams started early at the Tsurumi relay station (starting point in the 10th ward) on the return trip.At the Totsuka relay station (starting point in the 4th ward), at least one team had to start at least one team in the 9th, 88th to 90th, and 95th tournaments.In addition, the three tournaments from the 98nd to the 8th had an advanced start at the Hiratsuka relay station (starting point in the 1th ward) on the return trip.

However, in the 96th, despite the fact that the upper schools broke the section record across the board, the lower universities also performed well, and as a result, the advance start was limited to 3 teams at the Tsurumi relay station, and the strength of each school gradually balanced. It is becoming more and more popular.In the following 97th and 98th times, the advance start at the Tsurumi relay station was limited to two teams.

Died in an accident during practice (test run)

December 32, 1956, when the 12nd Games were heldHakone town OfNational Highway 1・ I was practicing a relay race (test run) in the Miyanoshita area.Senshu UniversityStudent, Kunio KoyamaTraffic accidentI met and died.At the time of the accident, Koyama was running down the national highway No. 1.By the way, Koyama entered the 32nd tournament as a runner in the 7th ward of Senshu University, and finished 1th in the section with a time of 13 hour 35 minutes 9 seconds.[81][82][83].

On March 2, 1959, more than two years after the accident, the Miyanoshita Tourism Association erected the 3th Ekiden Memorial with the intention of requiescating Koyama.The monument is on the right hand side, about 5m up from the Miyanoshita intersection in the direction of Motohakone.Hakone Jinja(Hakone Shrine)It exists near Miyanoshita Betsuin, and the phrase of requiescats by Oyama's mother is engraved on the back.[81][82][Note 19].

Preliminary test runs on the course are currently prohibited by the organizer of this relay road race, Kanto Gakuren, for safety reasons.However, in reality, there are some people who seem to be Hakone Ekiden runners who test run in the mountains of Hakone.[81].

Hakone Ekiden Museum

2005In March, the theme was Hakone Ekiden on the shores of Lake Ashi.Hakone Ekiden MuseumHas opened.The theme of sportsMuseumThere are many, but as one event[Note 20]It is extremely rare to be made into a museum.Operation isFujiya HotelIs going.

Garbage pick-up relay road race

For two days from the day after the Hakone Ekiden road, students from the participating universities pick up trash and walk the same course again.1998In the wake of the move to revive the walking activities of Kanagawa University2006It was renewed in the form of "university competition / garbage picking". It was called "another Hakone Ekiden".

The schedule consists of 5 sections of the outbound route divided into 2 days, and the 1st day is 3 sections from Tokyo / Otemachi to Kanagawa / Hiratsuka. On the second day, walk through the two sections of Hiratsuka-Hakone while picking up trash.The ranking is 2P per bag and 2P if it is half.Arrival time is based on the last team, and 1P will be added every minute earlier.

In principle, the number of teams is 5, but unless 5 people gather, 3 people can participate in 1 team.

At first, it was only a university, but now it is possible for the general public to participate, and women, working people, and teams from overseas who cannot participate in the Hakone Ekiden are also participating.

In 2011, the name was changed to "Another Tokaido Ekiden" and a garbage picking relay road race was held up to Sanjo Ohashi in Kyoto.Expanded activities outside of Tokyo-Kanagawa[85].


Hakone Ekiden is an event with a long history in Japanese sports.Therefore, various episodes were born.

  • The purpose of the Hakone Ekiden is to "attract tourists in the winter," but a Keio University athlete was lost in the mountains of Hakone in the XNUMXth ward of the first Ekiden. It was found by searching in Sode (Hakone-machi at that time was Hakone, Moto-Hakone, and Ashinoyu).The athlete clung to the tree and cried, "I don't want to run anymore! Why do I have to run!"Although it did not turn out to be the worst in the cold with light snow, it is said that this made it impossible to publicize the purpose of attracting tourists.
  • Each school's companion carCheer teamCheered the boarding players in large numbers, but because it was dangerousYouno Kono(Japan Athletics FederationChairman·Chairman of the House of Representatives-Minister of Foreign AffairsWas abolished.
  • At the awards ceremony, the winning flag was awarded to the overall winning school, but because the winning school of the previous year left it at the university, he hurriedly returned to pick it up, and the start time of the award ceremony was delayed.
  • In the 63rd (1987), a Juntendo University player fell in the final 10 wards due to contact with a fan who suddenly jumped out with excitement.
  • In the past, it was held in bad weather (mostly snowfall) on rare occasions, but in some cases transportation was affected and athletes and officials could not arrive and were in danger of being disqualified. ..
  • In recent years, the Yomiuri Shimbun and Hochi Shimbun's paper cheering flags distributed along the road have been accompanied by prize application tickets.This was a device to prevent the spectators from throwing the used small flags along the road. The 2007 sweepstakes ranged from 1st to 8th, and the 1st prize was the "Hakone Hotel Kowakien Accommodation Invitation Ticket".The 2010 cheering flag is made of cloth, and the Yomiuri Shimbun flag is dyed with the Yomiuri Shimbun flag design, and the "86th Hakone Ekiden" is written at the top.
  • As mentioned below, many athletes aim for the Hakone Ekiden, and many athletes graduated from university and joined the business team, but re-entered a leading school and ran Hakone just because they wanted to run in Hakone.[86].
  • In the 79th (2003), near the university, near the actual performanceShopliftingA Senshu University player who found the criminal said, "I will definitely run the Hakone Ekiden. I will chase after him forever." He arrested the criminal and contributed to the arrest.This player actually ran in the actual performance, but ended up at the bottom of the section due to abdominal pain, but after a series of good deeds, his name recognition increased, and in that actual performance, he said, "I was very happy to be called by name from the roadside and supported me." is.

Problems with Hakone Ekiden

Many problems have been highlighted in the Hakone Ekiden due to the popularity of the Hakone Ekiden, which has been broadcast live nationwide (NTV) since 1987.The main discussions are summarized below.In order to solve these problems, the "Kanto Gakuren" was established.Ekiden Countermeasures CommitteeExpectations are gathered for the existence of.


Yamanashi Gakuin University, which made its first appearance in the 63rd (1987), which is the same as the start of live TV broadcasting nationwide, is in its third year of participation.AfricanStudentsI called in the players.Hakone Ekiden at the discretion of the organizerForeignerAthletes became able to run, and the overwhelming running created a new breeze.In particular, they often played "burdock-free" in "Hana no 2 Ward", which is considered to be the ace section of the outbound route.After that, Yamanashi Gakuin University won the overall victory three times due to their fast running, and continued to participate for more than 3 years from the first appearance, which is a major factor that spurs the increase in African students. ing.

the 1980sThe appearance of international students has also had a major impact on the speeding up of the entire race from the second half.alreadyNational High School Ekiden,New Year Ekidenでは、外国人選手の起用制限事項(1チームあたりのエントリー数、起用区間の制限など)があり、箱根駅伝においても第82回(2006年)からは、前述の内規第9条を変更し、16名のエントリー時点では2人まで登録可能だが、実際に本番で走ることができるのは1人に限ると決められ、2005年秋に実施された予選会より適用されている。2006年以降本番で留学生を2名エントリーしたのは山梨学院大学(第85回 2009年・第92回 2016年)、日本大学(第86回 2010年・第89回 2013年・第92回 2016年)、拓殖大学(第87回 2011年・第88回 2012年)、国士舘大学(第95回 2019年)、創価大学(第96回 2020年)、東京国際大学(第96-98回 2020-2022年)の例があり、いずれの例も、実際に本番で走ったのは1名のみで、もう1名は補欠選手となった。なお、三大大学駅伝の残り2つのうち「All Nippon University EkidenIn 2011, the number of people will be restricted as in the Hakone Ekiden, but "Izumo EkidenThere is no regulation in.

However, the appointment of international students does not necessarily lead to good results.Yamanashi Gakuin University was the only university that actually won the overall victory with international students, and the last one to win was the 71st (1995), a university that achieved the overall victory with new international students for more than 25 years. Has not come out.The seed right is no exception, and at the 93rd (2017), four schools, Yamanashi Gakuin University, Soka University, Takushoku University, and Nihon University, appointed international students (all in the second ward), but Soka University's 4th place is the highest, and 2th place and all 12 schools have dropped seeds to Nihon University.

Up to now, African students have run in Hakone Ekiden at 10 schools: Yamanashi Gakuin University, Asia University, Heisei International University, Nihon University, Takushoku University, Tokyo International University, Soka University, Kokushitan University, Senshu University, and Surugadai University. Is.

White, There are few examples of being selected as an Asian student player[Note 21].

Ekiden Ekiden and Incare Point

Hakone Ekiden as part of university management policyPRThe number of universities that expect the effect is increasing.Therefore, apart from the university that is called the "Athletics Club" but actually operates mainly in the long-distance department, the university that calls the "Ekiden Club", and the "Athletics Club Director", the "Ekiden Director" specializes in Ekiden. Some universities have a position called ".Some universities that participate in the qualifying round tend to be reluctant to participate in the Incare because they devote themselves to the qualifying round.

The above-mentioned measures against "Ekiden bias" have a great influence on the background of introducing the points of Kanto Incare in the results of the qualifying session.The organizer also called Hakone Ekiden "cultivation of athletics who are familiar with the world" and introduced it to return to its origin.This system has been controversial since its introduction, and Kanto Gakuren has left the possibility of considering rebuilding the system in 5, five years after its introduction.On the other hand, for abolition theory etc.Keisuke SawakiShowed the view that "the same university just happened to be the target of tragedy," and dismissed the abolition theory that five years had already passed since the introduction and each university was devising countermeasures.Yoshiyuki AobaHe also commented, "Because there are various reasons for increasing the number of participation slots, it would be a problem if you were told that you were sorry (the team that was defeated) without knowing such circumstances."As a whole, the Kanto Gakuren side is considering the review theory as originally planned.Although the point system was changed from the 84th (2008) qualifying session, he expressed a negative view on the abolition.

インカレポイントについて、第86回(2010年)終了時から廃止・継続又は新制度の導入などの議論を重ねた結果、2012年6月6日に行われた関東学連代表委員総会において、第89回(2013年)は現行どおり実施、第90回(2014年)は不採用とすることが決定された。第91回(2015年)以降については、廃止・継続のいずれの可能性も残し、継続して検討を重ねたところ、2013年6月10日の関東学連代表委員総会で「インカレポイントは5年に1回の記念大会にのみ採用する」と決定された。具体的な運用については今後決定するとしている[87]..The method currently under consideration is the creation of an "incare point frame" that is exempt from the qualifying session separately from the qualifying session.With this method, the top-ranked universities will qualify for the main race by converting the overall ranking of the Kanto Student vs. School Championship for the last five years and the number of entries into points (according to a report by Jiji Press).[88].

At the Kanto Gakuren Representative Committee General Assembly on March 2014, 3, instead of the conventional Kanto Incare Point, participated in the university with the highest cumulative total of 31 years in the commemorative tournament every 95 years from the 5th tournament. It was officially decided that the Kanto Incare performance frame to give rights would be created.[4]..However, after the 95th tournament, it was decided that this Kanto Incare score frame will be abolished only once.It is unclear how Incare points will be used in the future.

Open door

There are many people and media who call Hakone Ekiden along with Izumo Ekiden and All Japan University Ekiden as "three major university Ekiden", but Izumo Ekiden and All Japan University EkidenNational convention(Sponsor: Nihon Gakuren) On the other hand, Hakone Ekiden is sponsored by Kanto Gakuren, an organization under the Nihon Gakuren.Local conventionAs it is nothing more than, the status as a tournament is clearly below[Note 22], It is also the Kanto area selection meeting of Izumo Ekiden.However, in recent years, each university in the Kanto region has a strong tendency to set the biggest goal of the year in the Hakone Ekiden.[Note 23]Furthermore, compared to All Japan University Ekiden and Izumo Ekiden, Hakone Ekiden has a very large number of sections and the average distance per section, and there are also "mountain climbing" and "mountain descent" sections that other student Ekiden do not have. (It is the toughest of all student relay road races), so Izumo Ekiden and All Japan University Ekiden, which should be the most prestigious in the national competition, will fight in the sense of a mere outpost or adjustment match of Hakone Ekiden, and will not necessarily be the best member. Not a few universities do not send it.In addition, Hakone Ekiden, which is supposed to be a local competition, has become the de facto No. 1 deciding match for student Ekiden and the largest event in domestic athletics.Tokyo extreme concentrationIs happening[Note 24].

In addition, due to the local competition in the Kanto area, participation in this competition is limited to member schools of the Kanto Gakuren in principle, but due to the influence of television coverage, it has become a well-known sporting event nationwide, so other regions There are often calls for the opening of the door to the university.

The Kanto Gakuren has considered opening the door to teams in other regions in the 1960s, but if the participation in the qualifying round is open to the whole country,National conventionTherefore, it will be necessary to transfer the control of the tournament to the Japan Academy.The opening of the door was not realized at this time because the alumni of the Kanto Gakuren leading schools who wanted to avoid changing the initiative of the event took the lead in opposition.

In response to this move, the Kansai Gakuren and Tokai Gakuren played a central role in leading the establishment of the All Japan University Ekiden with the aim of establishing a national convention with higher authority than Hakone.Under these circumstances, Kanto Gakuren opposes the establishment of All Japan University Ekiden until the end.After that, the opinion to open the Hakone Ekiden to universities other than Kanto will disappear.In addition, in the 90th (2014), it was reported that 3 additional slots for the commemorative tournament will be given to teams other than Kanto, but it has been clarified whether it is as a student selection or as a single team. Did not[Note 25][Note 26]..In the end, as mentioned above, only the Kanto team was selected.

However, in recent years, the difference in ability between the participating schools of All Japan University Ekiden and the universities in other regions has been clearly reflected.This is said to be a peculiar phenomenon of the male student relay road race.[Note 27]..While almost all universities in the Kanto region occupy the top ranks, the authority of the All Japan University Ekiden has declined significantly due to the situation where universities participating from rural areas have already started moving forward at a point where less than half of them go. There is.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology is still instructing student competition groups to hold only two national competitions, a championship based on ability and a selection competition. The relationship with the Izumo (selected) relay road race and the All Japan University relay road race (championship), which are run as competitions, becomes a problem.However, in reality, Hakone Ekiden is the longest-running Ekiden in Japan, and considering that it is well known, it is unlikely that the Kanto Gakuren, which has been hosting for many years, will let go of this event.

At the supervisory meeting held in January 2010, the mass media reported that the Kanto Gakuren selection frame will be reviewed, including the proposal to "abolish" or "open the door to" nationwide "".[89], Survived until the 89th (2013)[90]..For the rest, refer to the description of the Gakuren Selection Team.

On November 2017, 11, Kanto Gakuren announced that it is considering nationwide from the 6 commemorative tournament, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary.As a tentative plan at the moment, if a certain time standard is met in the qualifying session in the fall of the previous year, universities other than the Kanto area can also participate, and the main race is also accepted as a formal record, not as an open participation, even after the commemorative tournament. The possibility of using a similar format is mentioned.[91][92].

On June 2022, 6, Kanto Gakuren announced that it would extend the qualifications for the 30th Hakone Ekiden Preliminary Round, which is scheduled to be held in October 2023, from the current Kanto Gakuren to the Japan Gakuren.As a result, the number of universities that can participate has expanded nationwide.[93]

Hakone Ekiden unnecessary theory

conventionallyTelevision Tokyo Channel 12, Ltd.It was only the goal broadcast byAs described below1987からNippon TVWhen the full live broadcast on the nationwide network started, the university side began to show the advertising side, and as a result, it became a game-oriented relay race, and as a result, it began to show the following harmful effects "unnecessary theory" (By the way, this race is not a national championship, but as mentioned in the above section, it is Kanto local).

Disregard of the truck

It was pointed out that by practicing running a long distance for the purpose of building endurance for the Hakone Ekiden and neglecting the track event that speeds up, the athletes will not be able to acquire speed and will not be able to win the world championships. There is[94]..Was a top player in high schoolEndo HyugaAnd foreign studentsJulius Gitahi,Samuel Wandil,Bedan KarokiIn some cases, instead of going to a university in the Kanto region, he directly joins a business group.

Scandals and their response by university track and field club officials

Of these, the former deals with the above problems relatively often, while the latter deals with a series of problems, but tends not to write too deeply, although the Hakone Ekiden itself is specialized in predictions. ..This is also because the latter has a close connection with the Kanto Gakuren, which hosts the Hakone Ekiden, and participates in this tournament as a tournament cooperation.

However, the editor-in-chief of "Monthly Athletics" often complains about the international student system.

The Hakone Ekiden watching guidebook has been released as an extra issue of the above two magazines, as well as by the co-sponsor Yomiuri Shimbun and the sponsor Hochi Shimbun.[Note 54].
