Nike We Run Manila 10k – 15 October 2011

Thursday, 8 September 2011  |  Race Announcements

Last week, I attended the presscon for Nike’s We Run Manila 10k. We Run Manila 10k is part of the Nike We Run City 10k races.

– with Tricia Chiongbian (will you be my Nike Run Buddy?!), Gary Mercado, and Marco –

– Peejo Pilar of Mens Health flirting with the mannequin.  Kidding. He was actually shopping for shorts for his wife! –

To be honest with you, I thought that Nike Human Race in the past was a brilliant idea and that Nike should’ve continued it.  (How can you forget those awesome red Nike Human Race shirts? Drool drool)  But, I heard that organizing the Nike Human Race simultaneously in various key cities around the world was simply a logistical nightmare.  I guess We Run Manila is the simpler solution and hopefully an event that’s just as successful. (Read about 2008 Nike Human Race HERE)

For We Run Manila, Nike expects 8,000 local runners to be part of the 150,000 runners from 15 cities all across the globe such as Seoul (South Korea), Monterrey (Mexico) and Santiago (Chile) participating in the Nike City 10k races from now until the end of the year.

We Run Manila 10k will be a night run on October 15, 2011 at Fort Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. At the end of the race the runners will be treated with performances by Chicosci, Parokya ni Edgar.

Registration is ongoing at Nike Park Fort, RunnR Bonifacio High Street and Shangri-la Plaza, online through and in select universities. Registration fees and categories are:

  • Under 25 yrs old – PhP 750.00 (solo), PhP 1,300.00 (for 2)
  • 25 yrs old & above – PhP 1,000.00 (solo), PhP 1,300.00 (for 2)

A special discount for registered runners will also be available at select Nike stores.

I would’ve wanted to participate, but I’ll most likely be abroad running the Guam Half Marathon.  Hope you guys can all join We Run Manila!
