As I mentioned last week the 2009 Nike Human Race date is set, October 24th. Now it is officially official as now not only is the site up and running LINK but now the press releases are out and various media outlets are drumming up some noise. Including Nike's hometown press:
While the 10K run, which is going to be held on October 24, sees its main events organized in just three places across the United States, including the University of Southern California, different stores and groups are registering online to host smaller running events that anyone can be a part of. - source
Check online for your local Nike Human Race events. Also see lots of pictures and what not of last years I have a bunch of stuff posted LINK (scroll down on that page link for photos of past Nike hosted 10K's) that you can look at. As for me I look forward to the 2009 Human Race. Now only if I can beat last years time. (photo from the nike run hit remix which is now The Human Race)
First of all the 2009 Nike Huan Race will be on October 24th click LINK for more info. That is only 72 days to train for the 10k. Tonight was my first run with the Niketown Run Club in months. I ran the 5 mile run. Did it at about 45 mins. Didn't time myself. Next week as i bought the new Nike+ Sportband 2.0. I got the pink and white one. So now I have no excuse not to run. Plus keeping track of my runs on Nike+ makes me want to run. Earlier today I hit the gym and did arms and chest. I wasn't that inspired to workout.
According to Nike exactly 779,275 people ran on 08.31.08 for Nike+ Human Race 10K
event. That's a hell of a lot of runners! With a portion of entry fee for all those runners going to charities like Livestrong.org it was truly a day of running for change.
To date over over 1.2 million members have joined Nike+ online making it the largest online running community. These runners have logged over 21 million runs and nearly 78 million miles.
