Arcus join as Founding Partners

We are delighted to welcome Arcus as a Founding Partner of the inaugural UK Ekiden running relay race to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Hakone Ekiden.

Taking place on June 24th, the race will follow an iconic route from Oxford to Windsor along the Thames Path. Ekiden, a widely celebrated sport in Japan, symbolises teamwork, endurance and camaraderie as teams relay over long distances.  Arcus recently celebrated their 25th anniversary and have always had a long term focus across all aspects of their business.

“With our deep understanding of Japan, we’re proud to be a part of this event as it brings a long-standing Japanese tradition to the heart of the UK.” 

Peter Tasker, Owner of Arcus

“The Arcus team are well respected thought-leaders on Japanese investments, and we are delighted that they chose to invest in the UK Ekiden sponsorship opportunity. It’s a great fit, and demonstrates their broad knowledge of Japan and the Japanese culture” 

Anna Dingley, Founder of UK Ekiden

A Founding Partner means that the company will have one of the 7 guaranteed team spaces.
