Human Race Redux...

Nike had grand plans for the Human Race in 2008: 25 cities, 25 big bands, and 1 million runners! Well, they tried. And I'm sure not going to knock them for trying.

But in 2009, Nike is toning the Human Race 10k back a bit. There are official races only in three locations in the US. Closest destination for NW runners...L.A. Hmmm...probably not going to make it.

So Nike is also promoting that you run a 10k on October 24th, anywhere in the world, and record it with your Nike+. And there you go - you've participated in your first highly organized one-person race!

Whatever works for you. If you're looking for something a little more traditional, keep on scrolling!

  1. I just heard from a fellow runner that the Corvallis 15K has a coveted mug that you can get after your 5th time in this event (no need to be consecutive!) I may have to run/walk it this year just to pave the way for a future prize!
