The uniqueness of a team relay places heavy emphasis on the beauty of teamwork and allows runners to race and bond with their teammates. A team of four can register in either all-Male, all-Female or the Mixed team categories, in two race distances – Full Marathon (42km) and Half Marathon (21km). ASICS Relay 2019 has also introduced a new Half Marathon category to accommodate smaller teams. The ‘Buddy of 2’ category will require each team member to complete 10.5km to finish the race.
Following the Malaysia leg of the ASICS Relay, we cross the causeway to Singapore for the final leg of the ASICS Relay. With Singapore being known for its Marina Bay Skyline, brace yourself for an epic race experience along the picturesque Bayfront area, passing iconic landmarks like the Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay and the Merlion.
The ASICS Relay 2019 Singapore Edition is expected to see about 1,500 teams. The winning team of the 42km Full Marathon will be walking away with a grand prize of $1000 and 4 pairs of ASICS shoes.
