Nike provides an avenue for runners around the world to converge and run in one day through the Nike+ Human Race 10K. By synching their runs onto Nike Plus, runners at any place in the world can compare statistics with other runners by syncing their respective Sportbands any time on the 24th of October.
Since we are not an official race city, Nike has partnered with Subic International Marathon to provide Human Race participants a venue to run together. Please note that partnering with SIM does not make the Philippines an official race city. Race cities are chosen according to the size of the running community, and running in the Philippines is still an emerging sport compared to the other countries. Hopefully, in the next 2 years, we can be an official race city
The virtual Nike+ Human Race 2009 will be part of the Subic International Marathon on October 24, 2009, 4 PM. It will be a sundown run, so people can actually drive to Subic in the morning in time for the afternoon race and get home after the race as well. Participants of the 10K leg, regardless if they have a Sportband or a Nike+ kit, will get a limited edition Finisher’s Bracelet to certify their accomplishment of running with the world. The only requirement is that they are registered Nike+ users. There will be laptops set-up at the finish line for those who haven’t registered yet so they can register on the spot.
Please note though that the Nike+ Human Race as part of the Subic International Marathon isn’t free and you still have to register for this through Smart. For the details of the registration, just visit Subic International Marathon .
