After a very successful Nike We Run Manila 2011, Nike’s We Run is back for it’s second year, once again aiming to inspire, motivate and especially connect runners not only in Manila but in the entire world! So mark your calendars because on December 2, 2012, Filipino runners will be part of the global Run race movement.


The Nike We Run race movement will see a total of 395,500 runners from 34 cities and through this will establish a new global community of runners using the innovative Nike+ technology. The We Run race series kicked off on September 1 in Prague, Czech Republic, and will conclude on December 15 in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.


“Nike’s We Run race is the celebration of running across the world, the culmination of every runner’s dedication and commitment to train harder, defy expectations and push their bodies’ limits. Nike aims to revolutionize the running experience, by allowing runners to inspire, motivate and connect with other runners globally through the Nike+ Technology”, shared Sanjay Gangopadhyay, Marketing Director of Nike South East Asia. “With the second edition of the We Run race in Manila, Nike envisions Filipinos, the youth in particular, to further move the local running scene forward by leading the active lifestyle movement.”

Nike We Run Manila 2012 Race Route in Detail

On December 2, at least 13,000 runners are expected to make tracks all over the SM Mall of Asia grounds as each runs a distance of 10km passing through gorgeous sceneries like Manila Bay, to SMX and to the latest eye-shaped SM Bay City Arena. Runners are set to leave urban commercial scenery and head towards the fields along Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard. Somewhere along the halfway point, runners will also pass the upcoming Belle Casino, a gold complex glistening in the morning sun. As they take a turn on Pacific Avenue and race past the same landmarks, runners will come upon the iconic ferris-wheel along Seaside Boulevard that marks the final kilometer to the finish line. The panoramic run would not be complete without an engaging en route entertainment featuring some of Manila’s top musical acts.


Nike We Run Manila 2012 Race Village

At the finish line, get ready to go through the Race Village where you will experience a variety of services. One to look forward to is the massage booth where you can get pampered and the refreshments stalls where you can recharge while listening to the energetic musical line-up.
