This Sunday, June 21st thousands of women will converge on Victoria Park for Nike’s sold out We Run London event, including us! Top athletes, women in music, fashion, film and TV – including one of our favourite sporty sisters, Ellie Goulding – are lacing up their sneakers (Nike, of course) and training up for the flat 10k (6.2 mile) race around the park.
Nike+ Run Clubs have supported women through out the training period since the launch of the event – along with anyone getting on board digitally with the Nike+ app to track your run. Part of a global women’s race series, the event is all about taking control of your run in the best way possible including a few unexpected surprises along the way.
London’s ladies will be running as an individual or in a crew. And if you missed out on a place in the race, you can still claim victory this Sunday. Sign up and share your 10km Nike+ run with the team for a chance to be rewarded! Or, simply watch the #WeRunLondon hashtag and set up a picnic rug at any of the recommended viewing spots (check the website closer to the day).
We’re expecting every kind of woman together in one place, all ready to pound the pavement. No matter who you’re running with or how fast you’re running it’ll be time to bring your own flare to the track.
Oh, and if running with all your girls isn’t enough to get you to the finish line, there will be a festival style afterparty, finisher’s necklaces, and eh-ehm: a toast bar sponsored by Pip and Nut! Who doesn’t love nut butter toast? We sure do!
Ready, set, run forrest, run!
