Last year was the inaugural Nike Human Race 10k run and it was a roaring success with almost a million runners worldwide taking part in the festivities and Vancouver had the honour of being the sole Canadian city. This year Nike has made it easier for runners across the country to participate as 10 Canadian cities will be on board. Also last year two of our very own bloggers participated in the race, sadly this year due to scheduling conflicts the Vancity Buzz writing team will not be participating.
The process for getting registered is super easy: Go to the “Register” section and select your preferred method: You can either run with a group at one of the 10 event locations across Canada, or register to run wherever you are on 10.24.2009 with Nike+.
The registration fee is $20 for the organized race events, with a portion from each registration going to support the Livestrong Foundation. There’s no registration fee if you choose to run on your own with Nike+.
After you’ve completed your run on October 24th, be sure to sync your run at Nikeplus.com to make sure your run is counted as part of the Nike+ Human Race 10K.
Then bask in the glory of knowing you took part in the largest race of its kind, running with the world.
