In the months leading up to race day, Nike will organise a series of training events beginning in November. Each session will feature runs, Nike Training Club (NTC) and expert advice.
Registered runners will be invited to the race’s pre-expo, where scientific expertise and tools will be on hand to assist runners in developing a training program. Selected runners will be able to participate in scientific tests that help measure and analyse a person’s running technique, recovery rate, and VO2 max. Runners will also be able to find footwear appropriate to their running style, and apparel that will enable them to train and race.
In addition to footwear and apparel, Nike helps runners prepare for race day through the more than 30 million strong Nike+ community who have together logged over 1.7 billion kilometres. The Nike+ ecosystem elevates training as an integral part of your race day preparation. Elite runners know that pushing yourself in training is what drives success in actual races.
