I suppose one could argue that an Ekiden would allow for someone else to get a medal. It wouldn't have to be a Kenyan/Ethiopian sweep of the medals, as each country could only get one medal. Also, you're right that an Ekiden has more strategy than a cross country style race where a team as a whole can work together to break the field.
