On Saturday, October 24, 2009, runners around the world will participate in the Nike+ Human Race 10K. What is it? The Human Race is a virtual 10K. You can run anywhere, any time on race day. If you're new to running and haven't quite gotten the nerve to participate in a live race, this is a perfect way to ease into competing. You can complete your race alone or with a group of friends.
All you have to do is:
1.) Register with Nike
2.) Sign up for the global 10K
3.) Enable your Nike+ the day of the event and your miles will be added alongside runners all over the world
If running a virtual race isn't up your alley. You can run with your fellow Nike+ friends at Prospect Park in New York, or you can visit www.inside.nike.com to find a running group near you.
