All over the world, millions of runners will virtually run together on 08.31.08. In major cities chosen by Nike, such as L.A., Tokyo and London, there will be Nike+ Human Races where runners can join an official Nike race and run together. Manila is not one of those cities.
However, Nike Philippines will organize a special race on 08.31.08 to gather all the virtual runners together so they can, in fact, run the full 10k as one. This will not be an official Nike+ Human Race, therefore one should not expect the same Nike+ Human Race singlets and giveaways given in races across the globe, but it will be a real race, made more exciting and extravagant by Nike Philippines.
Note: You must have a Nike+ Sportskit or SportsBand to join the race. You have to log a total of 10km on your Nike+ on 08.31.08. If it comes out less than 10k, you will not be counted as a finisher.
