Nike+ 10K Human Race Updates: Running with Coach Rio!

Hey folks! So we have two weeks to go till the Nike Human Race. A few folks were asking if Manila, Philippines is part of the 25 cities that will be holding an official race. Manila is not an official city for a physical race, but the Philippines is still part of the Race the World Challenge and very much part of the 10k virtual race. I’m running with PhilMUG.

The friendly folks from Nike have partnered with Coach Rio, who will be, in turn, organizing a physical run on 8.31.08 at the Fort, Bonifacio High Street.

i havent seen the sport band yet here but the SRP online is between 60 to 80 dollars. im assuming it is about 4k to 5k. let me check and see if this is accurate 🙂

I’m interested in getting the sport band. Do you still have discount coupons? Email me. Thanks.

can i get a 20% discount from you? I really want to join the race. That 20% discount is a big help to cut my expense for that item.

by the way, i like the look and feel of your website. 🙂 can you teach me how to do the it?

Thanks.

Astig new WP blog design mo ha!! 🙂 Did Gisele do the artwork for the bug characters ba?

Shocks, ngayon ko lang nalaman toh. Although, I’m just good for 5k runs I wouldn’t mind participating in this Nike 10k run. Is it too late to join ba!?
