We find APBIM a regional and internationally renowned marathon for serious runners that resonate our creed and image. We would like to bring the ASICS running experience to marathon participants and look forward to expanding our footprint in Malaysia especially amongst serious runners through this strategic partnership,” said Ms. Kris Lee, Assistant Brand Manager of Giga Sports Sdn Bhd, official distributor of ASICS’ in Malaysia.

YB Danny Law Heng Kiang, Chairman of the Penang Tourism Development and Culture Committee and the Allianz Penang Bridge Marathon said, “ASICS and the APBIM share a number of important philosophies about high performance, growth and success. This common ground is the making of an exciting partnership. We are delighted to be announcing this inaugural partnership with ASICS, a company globally renowned as being synonymous with high performance and innovation. No other brand can lay claim to the fact that the majority of marathon runners worldwide wear Asics apparel, especially their shoes.”
