The third edition of ASICS Relay Singapore was held on 26th October 2019 at the Bayfront Event Square, with more than 3200 participants grouped into more than 800 teams taking part. Runners included local media personalities like Chantalle Ng, Ayden Sng, Elaine Rui Min and three of the city ambassadors, Toey Pongsakorn for Thailand, Jasmine Suraya for Malaysia, and Chase Tan for Singapore.

The Shufflers team took the top spot in the 42km category, where Nick Impey, Rie Sugaya, Valentin Cuzzucoli and Foo Gen Lin recorded finishing time of 2:23:29. They won for themselves a cash prize of S$1,000, along with four pairs of ASICS footwear, amongst other prizes.

The 21km race was won by Team RUnderated, comprising of Gordon Lim, Valerie Yong, Desmond Ang and Burton He, with a finishing time of 1:19:45.

In addition to the two race categories from previous years, the 42km Full Marathon and 21km Half Marathon, a new category was introduced to accommodate smaller teams – the Half Marathon (Buddy of 2) category. Each member of the buddy team had to complete 10.5km to finish the race.

The Buddy of 2 was won by the pair of Jeevaneesh Soundararajah and Raviin Kumar, recording a time of 1:23:56 to claim top spot.

On the event day, sponsors’ booths offered participants a welcomed respite after the race, where they were able to purchase bubble tea drinks from Gong Cha’s self-serving kiosk, hydrate with a bottle of Pocari Sweat, lounge in the AirAsia booth, receive a trial session of stretching with Dr. Stretch, and try on Citizen’s new Eco Dive watch.

The ASICS Relay is an annual running event that celebrates team-spirit. Unlike the usual marathon format that emphasises individual performance, ASICS Relay’s relay format requires each member of the team to complete an assigned portion of the distance, to pass on a race token to the next member.
