Some nice shots from the National Ekiden Champs on Instagram by Ubahnhof and Chaka076.

Hyogo Prefecture won the title for 5th time and 2nd year in a row. Tokyo were 2nd and Aichi 3rd. After finishing the first leg back in 43rd, Hiroshima pulled back to start the anchor leg in 8th and finished a respectable 6th.
