On 6 August 2023, Under Armour Indonesia will hold ‘The Under Armour Relay’, the first team relay race competition in Indonesia at Stadion Madya, Gelora Bung Karno, Jakarta. Leading up to this fun competition, participants are invited to join ‘Under Armour Run Crew’, a programme centred on improving running skills guided by professional coaches.
Good quality running is made of more than just strength and endurance. Good running has technique, and the Under Armour Run Crew is aimed at teaching the technical knowledge one needs to enhance athletic performance. The skills participants can learn range from running methods to avoid injury to improving the body’s ability to take in oxygen for longer-distance or more efficient runs.
The programme consists of basic running drills, warm-up exercises, posture exercises, body strength training, endurance exercises and training on running technique. Under Armour Indonesia has invited professional running coaches and also running athletes who are Brand Ambassadors to attend and provide their own tips and tricks. Saskia Fatmawati dan Roberto Aritonang are among those helping to train participants.
“Running is the simplest sport and it only requires the right pair of shoes, strong will, and passion. Because of that, I really enjoy running, even though I’m not a runner. And ‘The Under Armour Relay’ is a unique opportunity for all athletes, not just runners, to try their strength and determination in Under Armour Indonesia’s first relay run”, shared Jason Julius, Under Armour Brand Ambassador.
Under Armour Run Crew takes place every Tuesday in July, with sessions start at 7pm, hosted at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, Senayan, Jakarta. This program is entirely free and participants only have to register online or on the spot.
