As we round off our first year of the ASICS FrontRunner UK team and look ahead to welcoming our new team mates at the upcoming launch weekend in Birmingham it is time to reflect on the crazy family and all the adventures being an ASICS FrontRunner brings.

Well...what a year it has been!!! A real whirlwind!

Last February the very first ASICS FrontRunner UK and Ireland team was announced and now we are on the verge of welcoming 26 new team mates into the ASICS mad house at the 2018 launch event in Birmingham this weekend. 

So what exactly have we been up to and what can the new recruits expect from the year ahead?

Expect running and lots of it (well obviously)

Fun hanging out with friends

Smiles and Laughter

Going Bananas

A global family

Celebrating each others achievements

Supporting each other- come rain or shine

Pork pies

More smiles

Bromance.... lots of bromance

And some flipping awesome ladies



Inspirational runners

Hedgehog stalking and mascot madness

PARkrun fun

more bromance


Having someone by your side every step of the way



Thank you to everyone who has made my very first year on the ASICS FrontRunner UK team incredible. I am so blessed to have met such an incredible bunch of crazies and I can't wait for our FrontRunner family to expand. 

Here's to long runs, short runs, fast runs, slow runs, personal bests, personal worsts, smiles, laughter, support, friendship and FUN in 2018

p.s. thank you to @carelduplessis for some of the awesome shots used in this piece.
