On 21 October 2012, Nike’s We Run race returns to Singapore to inspire, support and connect runners around the world. The runners will be part of the global We Run race movement, and will see a total of 395,500 runners from 32 cities participating. It will forge a new global community of runners through Nike’s most connected race series yet with innovative Nike+ technology. The We Run race series kicks off on September 1 in Prague, Czech Republic, and will conclude on December 15 in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.
Singapore’s scenic city skyline will be the backdrop for the Nike We Run SG 10K this year, with the 10km race flagging off in the morning on the Esplanade Bridge and ending at the Waterfront Promenade @ Marina Bay. Participants will run by Singapore’s skyline, passing iconic architecture such as the Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, The Sail and Marina Bay Financial Centre. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the race, with 12,000 slots snapped up under 48 hours in 2011, organizers are increasing the race capacity to 20,000 this year.
Runners will also be treated to the Nike experience from beginning to end. To get race-ready, runners can sign up for training sessions led by Nike athletes. The Nike We Run SG 10K will also be Singapore’s only race that incorporates music on the route, with different music zones and entertainment along the race route, ensuring that there will never be a dull moment. At the race village located at the Waterfront Promenade @ Marina Bay, runners can expect activities aimed at celebrating running and friendship, connecting participants with like-minded people. Finishers of the 10K race will also receive a Finisher’s tee on top of the usual race tee – more ways to remember their experience by.
Public registration begins on 7 September 2012 and participants can log on to www.werunsg10k.com to sign up. Runners who have previously reserved their slots at Nike+ innovation space at Peranakan Place will be able to register from 4 September 2012 via the same website.
