HOUSTON, TX, October 31, 2018 – HIDIVE announced today that it acquired streaming rights to Run With the Wind for the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and other select territories. HIDIVE subscribers can watch the premiere on November 1, 2018 at 16:59 UTC with subsequent episodes released every Thursday.
Kakeru is a former elite runner in high school who finds himself down on his luck. After being chased for stealing food, he’s saved by Haiji, a Kansei University student and a fellow runner. Having nowhere else to go, Kakeru is convinced by Haiji to move into a dormitory with eight other strangers. Before Kakeru is even settled in his new home, Haiji announces his ambitious plans to enter all ten of them into one of the most prominent university relay marathons in Japan, the Hakone Ekiden. There’s just one small problem: with the exception of Haiji and Kakeru, none of the residents have ever run competitively before.
