ASICS is launching the ASICS META : Time : Trials – a pinnacle event that will combine ground-breaking new product and optimum race conditions to enable athletes to beat their Personal Best (PBs).

Taking place on 24th April 2022 in the Spanish city of Málaga, ASICS elite athletes from around the world will come together to take part in a high-octane series of races inspired by the Tour de France, as they push each other to achieve their own fastest times ever.

Over 80 athletes including Eilish McColgan, Boniface Kibiwott, Vicoty Chepngeno, Mohamed Katir, Josh Griffiths, Charlotte Arter and Natasha Cockram will compete in World Athletics certified races of either five kilometres, 10 kilometres or a half marathon, in a quest to run their fastest ever times.

All PB’s achieved at the event will be accomplished wearing the all-new METASPEED™ + shoes which will be revealed to the public for the first time. Building on the breakthrough success of the METASPEED™ series introduced in 2021, ASICS Institute of Sports Science (ISS) has utilized data accumulated through elite athletes in competitions to refine the product design and make runners even faster.

The races will start at 6.45am BST and will be available to follow via ASICS livestream on the ASICS Hub and YouTube channel as of 6.30am BST.
