NIKE WE RUN MNL 2013 - Nike Celebrates the Spirit of Filipinos

Written By clapalisoc on Tuesday 29 October 2013 | 04:36

Being a food blogger makes you pile up calories after calories with each restaurant visited. You always get that inkling to go out and try the newest restaurant or the trending ones. It's just so inevitable. If you're one who's really conscious with your figure, tendency is that you'll search for restaurants or order food that are "healthy". If not, then, you could be a gym regular or a jogging fanatic.

Looking at the jogging side of keeping fit, people now a days enjoy Fun Runs. Some are there for the sake of fund raising, to celebrate an event, for anniversaries of companies or simply for the sake of FUN. I must admit, it's fun to run with friends and even with strangers sharing the same passion.

Just like all other Fun Runs, Nike has it's own. But Nike doesn't just organize Fun Runs for the sake of just having one. This year, Nike We Run MNL (Manila) returns for it's third edition. In celebration of the spirit of Filipinos, Nike incorporated the personality of the people in our country - "having the kindred spirit, to unite for a good cause and help each other without hesitations". It is their hope that "every Filipino runner can inspire and motivate another and run the race together”Courtney Cole-Faso, Country Marketing Manager, Nike Philippines

We Run MNL 2013 aims to inspire, motivate and unite Filipinos to move more, move better.

With this in mind, the deal of the game this year is for a runner to sign up for the race with a "buddy". Nike believes that it's easier for one to achieve his/her goals if he/she has an accountability partner that will constantly provide motivation. If you come to think of it, this principle applies in almost all aspects of life. Isn't it great to have that someone to share your struggles and triumphs with?

Nike has set-up several ways for runners to prepare for the race ---

- Organized training sessions:  in November, Nike will be conducting training sessions in various locations around the city. Here, runners will participate in Nike Training Club, get tips from athletes and get an experience that only Nike can bring!

- Nike+ Community : With it's more 18 million strong community, Nike has released the new Nike+ Challenges. This feature allows runners to set a distance goal, invite Nike+ friends to join, and race to the virtual finish line. Users can determine the name of the Challenge, mileage goal, time period and participants. Additionally, a new chat feature allows friends to encourage each other and share tips throughout the Challenge. Runners can stay motivated by checking the live leader board to track progress and see where they rank amongst their friends.
