ASICS Oceania and the recently launched Sydney Running Academy, have formed a partnership that will see several of the state’s most talented middle and long distance athletes receive support from the world’s leading running shoe & apparel brand. In what is a huge step forward for the Academy, the partnership with ASICS will not only enable the athletes to access the best in performance running shoes and apparel, it will also help to ensure the Academy’s long term future.
Academy director and Coach Ken Green couldn’t be more excited about this development.
“The support that ASICS is to provide is fantastic for the squad. ASICS are a market leader and make products that have long been worn and trusted by athletes around the world.”
The partnership will see ASICS as the naming rights sponsor of the Sydney Running Academy (www.sydneyrunningacademy.com.au). ASICS will be the sole supplier of training & racing shoes and apparel to Academy athletes. ASICS will also provide support to enable athletes to travel to key training camps and to major international track and road-racing events.
