Nike+ Human Race – The world’s largest virtual race

Today Nike launches the world’s largest virtual running event, the Nike+ Human Race 2009. On 24 October, Nike is encouraging people to put on their running shoes and be part of a global online movement, with runners logging their own ultimate 10k wherever they are in the UK – or the world.

The growth of online communities from Facebook to Twitter has led Nike to embrace a new way of running from a physical race to an individual running event which sits within the virtual world.

Whether in an urban city environment or across the highest peaks, Nike is asking runners to complete their chosen 10k on 24 October, record the results on, the world’s largest online running community, using the Nike+ SportBand or Nike+ iPod Sport Kit and become part of the virtual Nike+ Human Race 2009.

A global leader board will be hosted on, with the fastest male and female from the UK championed and rewarded with a top prize. To help you prepare for race day will feature training programmes so you can aim to run faster than ever before on 24 October.

Registration is now open via and participation is free. Runners who sign up to Nike+ Human Race 2009 will also receive an exclusive race t-shirt to run in on race day, and also be provided with online training tips and inspiration from now through to race day.
