This running initiative will motivate you to get off the couch

Looking for some motivation to start running but can't force yourself to lace up and get out there? 

Asics, one of the leaders in high-performance athletic footwear and apparel has partnered with the Middle East’s largest sports retailer, Sun & Sand Sports, to bring about an exciting challenge for all of us here in the UAE.

For five months, the Run & Win initiative will encourage everyone to experience the thrill of running, whether you’re just starting out, or an absolute pro thanks to its training programs that are completely free of charge to access. 

Designed by professional running experts, the plans are split into four categories: 10km for beginners, 10km to up your speed, or 42km the marathon distance for beginners, or 42km to get your pace up. The fun part? Once settled in the program, every kilometre you run converts to points that can win you prizes.

Drumrolls, it gets better. The winner in each of the running categories will get a coveted spot at the London 10km run or Moscow Marathon, all expenses paid.
