Nike+ Human Race

Posted in:

Nike+ Human Race


Nike is challenging people young and old, of every fitness level, to get up and run together on one day – around the world.  More specifically, they are looking to have one million runners participate in a 10K called the Nike+ Human Race on August 31.




Proceeds from the Nike Human Race will benefit three global charities:

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF)













Physical 10K races will take place in 25 global markets from London to Istanbul to Shanghai and Sao Paulo. In the U.S., they will be hosted in Austin, Chicago, New York and L.A. Major musical acts will perform following the races in each of those markets including Ben Harper, Fall Out Boy, All-American Rejects and Kanye West respectively.


Those residing outside of physical race markets can join in via NikePlus, by registering for the race and uploading their 10K run data to nikeplus.com on race day, August 31.


  • What: Nike+ Human Race, a 10K race that brings together the power of sport and music to inspire and connect runners from every corner of the planet. 
  • Why: To unite runners globally like never before while raising money for three great charities – LAF, WWF and ninemillion.org
  • When: August 31, 2008
  • Where: 25 cities across the globe and for a complete list of host cities, visit nikeplus.com.
  • Who:  With a goal of securing one million participants globally, anyone can register for the Nike+ Human Race on Nikeplus.com.  Runners who can’t make it to a physical race city can also participate by using Nike+.  With the Nike+ iPod and Nike+ Sport Band, runners can track their miles and sync online, so they too can be part of the bigger race effort.
