Runners can choose among three categories: 5 km, 10 km, and 21 km. Aside from the fun, sense of community, and personal challenge, top performers can also go home with their very own Garmin watches. You can also expect exclusive promotions on Garmin wearables and the chance to explore the different offerings of the run’s sponsor booths.

Garmin Run Asia Series first launched in 2022, with three nations participating—Taiwan, Malaysia, and Thailand. In 2023, the run took place in Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Japan. But 2024 is going to be its biggest year yet, with nine countries on board—Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, and of course, the Philippines.
