Nike Run Manila - December 5 2010

A couple of weeks ago a teaser about a Nike fun run came out.  A handful were asking if it is the Nike+ Human Race, which was concluded on October of last year.  When the announcement went out there was no information that came along except for the event date (December 5)

One thing is for sure, it tickled the senses of the running community.  Some even opted out of joining QCIM over this one.  While others clamored for the event to be moved to another date.  Me too!  A handful wants this event to claim the title "King of the Road".  Sad thing is, it won't be able to do that.  As it turns out, this fun run will only have 1 distance category - 5 kilometers
