‘You’re The Run That I Want’

18 August 2004

‘You’re The Run That I Want’ Nike presents the most exciting running event ever to come to Auckland - ‘You’re The Run That I Want’.

The 10k run will take place on the Sunday the 3rd of October @ 9am and follows a course never before run in a major event, wrapping up with a legendary party atmosphere in the tradition of the hugely successful RUN LA, RUN London and RUN New York.

The course will start from Alexandra Park Raceway and will weave around One Tree Hill and back to a raging prize-enhanced and music-pumping finish line at Alexandra Park.

It’s always better doing it with someone else (we’re talking about running) so why not tell someone “You’re the run that I want” and run this 10km race together?

To help you train for the event, Nike is putting on free training sessions in the seven weeks leading up to the event. Training sessions depart city locations five times a week starting Monday August 16. You can trial Nike Running gear, relax with music and drinks afterwards and meet some new people. The training run schedule is available on:

Register for $30 online at Entry fee includes a Nike Dri-fit T-Shirt worth $60 and a five dollar donation goes to the Cystic Fibrosis Association of New Zealand.
