[26th March 2019 – INDONESIA] ASICS RELAY is Back! Armed with a brand-new logo, a regional ambassador, updated website and more, ASICS RELAY 2019 looks set to be very thrilling event when it launches in Southeast Asia from June onwards this year.
Running across four cities, ASICS RELAY 2019 kicks off in Jakarta, Indonesia (29 June), followed by Bangkok, Thailand (3 August) and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (7 September) before concluding the series at Singapore (12 October).
KPOP fans will be excited to know that not only, South Korean singer, Park Sang-Hyun aka Thunder has been signed on as the regional ambassador, but he will actually be participating one of the four ASICS RELAY races.
Running alongside Thunder, will also include a dream team of four city ambassadors – Olivia Jensen for Indonesia, Toey Pongsakorn for Thailand, Jasmine Suraya for Malaysia, and Zong Zi Jie for Singapore. The dream team will be representing their cities to run in each cities’ ASICS RELAY.
Across all four cities, ASICS Relay 2019 features two race distances – 42km Full Marathon and 21km Half Marathon. In teams of four, each participating team can choose from three relay categories – Male, Female, and Mixed team where each team member is required to complete 10.5 kilometers for Full Marathon, and 5.25 kilometers for Half Marathon to meet the total distance.
In addition to this format, to accommodate smaller teams, ASICS also launched a new category of two runners in a team for individuals.
Beyond the race, participants can also look forward to exciting activities and preview from local partners and sponsors at the race village. Participants will also receive an attractive finisher’s medal, personalized race bib, and an exclusive ASICS branded race tee, upon completion of the race.
So, exchange those lone training sessions for group runs as you buoy each other to the race day, because seeing the looks on your teammates’ exhausted but jubilant faces as you speed toward the finish line, and sweaty hugs exchanged between each other when you cross the finish line is truly an immersive experience like no other.
