29 September 2004

Last chance to register for Nike’s ultimate 10k run…YOU’RE THE RUN THAT I WANT

YOU’RE THE RUN THAT I WANT is the greatest 10K run ever to hit Auckland. Following in the footsteps of Nike’s hugely successful Run London, Run Toronto, Run New York and Run LA, the event will be an experience of a lifetime. HURRY UP! There are limited spots available and they’re filling fast. And it’s not surprising when you consider all this: HUGE PARTY AT THE FINISH LINE

The race will wrap up with an entertainment-packed party. There will be a live band, food and drink stalls and famous faces including gold medal cyclist Sarah Ulmer, Olympic triathlete Hamish Carter, Warrior Stacey Jones and world aerobic champs, the Aitken triplets.

VALUE FOR MONEY ENTRY PACK The $40 entry fee includes: an official Nike Dri-FIT race day t-shirt (valued at $60); a timing transponder; event information; and some goodies from the sponsors. Plus, $5 of your fee goes to the Cystic Fibrosis Association of New Zealand to assist its Breath4CF physical activity program.

UNIQUE 10K COURSE The event boasts a 10K course that has never before been used in a major running event. It starts and finishes at Alexandra Park Raceway after winding through Cornwall Park around One Tree Hill.
