The Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco sold out in a matter of hours. Now Nike+ is giving you a chance to run with the 20,000 lucky participants by bringing a virtual race to your backyard. It's a half marathon race without a distinct course, run in any city and tracked by each participant's own Nike+ system (iPod nano, Nike + iPod Sport Kit and pair of Nike+ shoes). Each participant is responsible for selecting their own 13.1 mile course route and the time of day of October 21, 2007 they want to run. As long as each participant successfully runs and syncs 13.1 miles with their Nike+ system on October 21, 2007, they will be considered an official Nike+ Women's Half Marathon finisher.
You'll need the Nike+ system and a computer with online service to sync the information to. The Nike+ system consists of: an iPod nano, a Nike + iPod Sport Kit and a pair of Nike+ shoes. You can purchase any of these pieces by visiting www.nikestore.com. In addition to the system, you'll also need a Nike+ membership before you can successfully register for the race. For more information or to become a member, visit www.nikeplus.com.
