No crowds. No start gun or pre-race nerves. No official starting line. Such is the flexibility and convenience offered by virtual races, the latest trend in the running community.
ASICS’ inaugural #IMOVEME Challenge seeks to transform organized racing with a 12-month virtual marathon series across Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Philippines, which aims to attract thousands of runners from across the region.
Organized in partnership with virtual race platform, 42Race, the year-long challenge will feature four marathons with different requirements.
Runners can sign up for the virtual marathons by registering online at <https://web.42race.com/race-bundle/asicsimoveme2020challenge>, choose from the marathon races that best suit them and run them anywhere they like – whether it’s on a treadmill or at their neighborhood street.
Upon completing the race, runners can then upload their finishing time and see how they stack up against the rest of the running world in the region.
Four Marathon Categories
There are four marathon categories – Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Ultra. The completion of each marathon will see runners earn a prized medal and a 15% discount ASICS e-voucher.
