Run Like a Girl: Nike+ Women's Half Marathon

Run Like a Girl: Nike+ Women's Half Marathon

If you were into the virtual element of the Nike+ Human Race on Aug. 31, you're going to love this Nike+ Women's Half Marathon. On Oct. 19, you can be part of the largest women's online race benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

This Nike+ event is on the same day as the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco. Unfortunately there's no more room left to register for that 26.2 mile race, so Nike is giving runners a chance to run alongside those 20,000 lucky runners with this 13.1 mile race. Just like with the Human Race, you can either sign up to run at select locations, or you can run wherever you are at whatever time you choose, using your Nike+ gear. After your run, you can upload your data to Nikeplus.com. The entry fee is $45, but all finishers receive their own Nike Sports Essentials Finisher's T-Shirt and an Official Finisher Keychain designed by Tiffany & Co. Interested? Then register now before the deadline ends October 8.

OMG! I tried to register for this sucker with some co-workers months and months back and registration was CLOSED and there's a waiting list for next year's event. The only way that we could even remotely be considered was to go through Team in Training and hope that there was still room on a Team. So we opted for the San Jose Rock N Roll Run.

not only is this a great event, but I work for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and it's an amazing organization - not to sound like a sales person, but if you are interested in training to run or walk a full or half marathon, we offer a fundraising program called Team In Training - we are done with sign-ups for this year's Nike event, but there are a bunch of other events throughout the year, or you can sign up to train for the 2009 Nike event next summer - www.teamintraining.org

If you click on the "website" icon in that 13.1 mile link it will take you to the place to register for 2008. I just signed up. I have to run 20 miles that day for my marathon training, so it will be great to run 13 of those miles as part of this. Conveniently, my boyfriend lives 7 miles from the Niketown store.

yeah I'm also interested in this, but all the active.com links are for 2007, and the Nike Plus link just shows me Human Race results but nothing about the women's half. In fact, I can't find anything about it anywhere on the Nike+ site - is this just for US users or something?
