Entries have started coming in for all the events as part of the O'Keefe.
Race Director Craig Green said, "it's great to see local Bendigo fitness organisation 3T Fitness getting involved in the Ekiden Relay event with 3 teams entered already from this group.
"Its a perfect event for an organisation with fitness goals. "Seven team members with the flexibility of different length relay legs caters for the needs of all fitness and ability levels. "We encourage other fitness groups, gymnasiums and the like to take up the challenge of either entering the team marathon event of the Ekiden Relay or the individual marathon, half marathon or 9.5km fun run ," said Green.
New Sponsors are also getting on board and we will have some further annoucements in this area soon.
