Nike We Run Series 2014 Launches Worldwide – But Not in Singapore
From Seoul to Soweto, Mexico City to Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur to Guatemala, runners will be moved to action through a series of unique Nike We Run races, with every race showcasing the highlights of each city. From now until February 2015, Nike's We Run Race Series will reach more than 140,000 runners in 14 races around the world.
Why Skip Singapore?
We are a little disappointed that the Nike We Run Race Series will not be making a stop in Singapore, considering that last year’s We Run Race saw over 18,000 runners here.
Runners in Singapore might be tempted to travel to Malaysia next year for the We Run Race in Kuala Lumpur instead!
More than Just a Typical 10km Race
Now in its 6th year, Nike’s We Run races range in distance from 7km to a full marathon, reflecting the particular enthusiasm of each city.
In today’s fast-paced world, runners demand more than just a typical 10km race. They expect new challenges that will push their boundaries and test their limits. They want to celebrate their milestones with their friends and running communities.
Tailored to the individual city, the We Run races bring together athletes and local musicians and build on the aesthetic of each landscape through carefully designed run courses.
Longer Race Distances for Selected Cities!
This season's Nike's We Run race highlights will include a variety of different course distances to challenge athletes. For the first time, several of the race cities, including Seoul, Kuala Lumpur and Mexico City will be 21km races.
The Nike We Run Races taking place in Asia are We Run Seoul (26 October 2014), We Run Bangkok (30 November 2014), We Run Jakarta (13 December 2014), and We Run Kuala Lumpur (1 February 2015).
Get Ready to Race Your Personal Best!
Nike is also connecting the running community with a series of pre-race training runs organized through their local Nike+ run clubs.
To date, the more than 30 million strong Nike+ community have together logged over 1.7 billion kilometres. Collectively, this season's We Run athletes will clock approximately 1.5 million kilometres - the equivalent of running the equator 39 times!
The next event in the Nike We Run Race Series will take place on 28 September 2014 in Istanbul. The Nike We Run Race Series will conclude on 1 February 2015 in Kuala Lumpur.
