1 day, 1 million runners, 25 cities, 1 big race! That is Nike's goal in organizing the World's Largest Race Event on August 31, 2008.
Asian cities included here are: Tokyo, Singapore, Shanghai and Taipei. No Manila city but no need to worry. For those people wanting to take part in this event but do not want to pay for added cost of plane ticket can just do their own run here. Anywhere. All you need is your Nike+ Sportsband or IPOD. Then run a 10k distance on August 31, 2008 (treadmill or on the streets) and just record results through the internet. And that's it! Simple as that.
Hopefully there is a 10k race during that day so can use that as basis for this run as well.
Too bad they don't have it here as the Nike shirt is pretty cool. Each one has its own unique number (up to 1,000,000)! Click on website below to view shirt design:
