The APU Women's Athletics Club competed in the 23rd Japan Intercollegiate Women's Ekiden Championship on Sunday November 27th.
This year the team finished in a time of 2 hrs 18 mins 1 sec, taking 17th place out of 25 schools.
Although the team beat last year's finish of 19th place (2 hrs 21 mins 38 secs), they were aiming for 10th to 12th place and therefore there was some disappointment felt by the team.
This championship once again showed the difficulty level of the Ekiden. The team will use this experience for next year's competition.
We would like to ask for your continued support.
