The We Run City 10K series began three years ago as an evolution of Nike’s Human Race, a global 10K held in dozens of cities around the world on a single day in 2008. That blockbuster race evolved into the We Run 10K series in 2009, and has since expanded its reach and impact. It is now Nike’s single largest race series.

  1. Thanks for the prompt updates. I find it funny that the two fastest runners received a 'smaller' prizes(without Nike's voucher) than the 3rd and 4th fastest runners because they participated in the under 25 category.
    Well done to you for gaining the medal!
