Distance: 10k
Time: anytime
Place: anywhere in the world

Nike provides an avenue for runners around the world to converge and run in one day through the Nike+ Human Race 10K. By synching their runs onto, runners at any place in the world can compare statistics with other runners by syncing their respective Sportbands any time on the 24th of October.


Nike has chosen key cities around the world where official Nike+ Human Race events will be held. Unfortunately, the Philippines was not chosen as an official race city. (Now, now, I know how we Pinoys can get all patriotic and can raise hell over not being picked. But, don’t sweat the small stuff. Our time will come.)


Since we are not an official race city, Nike Philippines offers runners the opportunity to run their 10k with others. Nike partnered with Subic International Marathon to provide Human Race participants a venue to run together.

The virtual Nike+ Human Race 2009 will be part of the Subic International Marathon on October 24, 2009, 4 PM. It will be a sundown run, so people can actually drive to Subic in the morning in time for the afternoon race and get home after the race as well. Participants of the 10K leg, regardless if they have a Sportband or a Nike+ kit, will get a limited edition Finisher’s Bracelet to certify their accomplishment of running with the world. The only thing Nike required is that you register in the Nike+ website. There will be laptops set-up at the finish line for those who haven’t registered yet so they can register on the spot.

– Partnering with SIM does not make the Philippines an official race city.
– The Nike+ Human Race as part of the Subic International Marathon isn’t free and you still have to register for this. For the details of the registration, just visit


To make the Nike+ Human Race more exciting, Nike has chosen 5 Nike Ambassadors to lead their own teams. They are:
– Team Banana Running, Bards Bathan (Banana Running)
– Team Steady Lang, Lino Cayetano
– Team Tatanka, Tata Garcia
– Reema’s Road Racers, Reema Chanco
– Team Weekend Warriors, Jinno Rufino

No brainer. I’m signing up with friend and fellow addicted runner, Bards of Team Banana Running. You should too!  Click here and join Team Banana Running NOW!
