The gist: run in one of 26 cities globally or wherever you are with Nike+ (sensor in shoe that syncs up to your iPod or SportBand). In the US you can run in one of 5 race cities: New York, LA, Chicago, Austin and Portland, OR. The cool thing about running in one of the cities is that for the race fee of $35, you get entry to the race, a one-of-a-kind dri-fit Human Race tee and entry into a concert at the finish line!
That's where my job came in... I've been traveling across the country and filming with our finish line bands:
Check out some of the videos I've produced below and for more go to our YouTube Channel and subscribe cause there's more to come!
You can also start running now with Nike+ and register for the race here. Start now and every step you take will go toward one of three charities: WWF, Ninemillion.org and the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
What are you waiting for? It's only 6 miles :)
