English Synopsis

The most famous Hakone Ekiden, a relay marathon where 10 runners from universities each run over a 2 day period. During the race, each runner on the team runs and passes the "Tasuki", a cloth sash baton, to the next runner. Passing the Tasuki resonates with the Japanese mentality of keeping the team spirit together and represents the strong bond and will among the teammates. Our idea was to use the “tasuki” and create a new interactive media experience. Collect live cheering messages through twitter and sew them onto “tasukis” LIVE during the race for the 4 teams Nike supports.
