THE INSIDE TRACK
Among the heroics of ASICS World Ekiden 2020 teams – runners like Roswitha Ruthner remind us it’s never too late to enjoy a sound mind in a sound body. With a combined age of 357, this unit trained together virtually and inspired us all with regular #ASICSWorldEkiden updates. Others like 'I Will Survive', led by ASICS Frontrunner Mikko Mallo, saw five nurses pass the tasuki after long days spent fighting Covid-19.
