What is an ASICS FrontRunner?

The ASICS FrontRunner community is for everyone - from beginners to elite marathon runners, ultra-runners and tri-athletes - and their team members are ambassadors of movement. The project strives to inspire members to move beyond their goals, to have fun and to share their passion for running.

Be part of a team that shares the love of movement

Last year, Team Vitality member Khomotso Mokgonyana became an ASICS FrontRunner. She says the experience has been "amazing".

"I had my own modest goals and dreams before joining the ASICS team. After becoming part of the ASICS FrontRunner team, I was motivated and inspired to progress more quickly in my running journey than I expected," she says.

"I became part of a great team that shares the love of movement. I had the opportunity to interact and share experiences with a global running community and it’s been amazing. To me, ASICS FrontRunner has become a catalyst for my running and it has given me wings to fly higher and higher."
