Nike+ Run Club & Warner Bros.' Looney Tunes Team Up To Challenge Runners

Zoom Pace Setters, a collaboration between Nike+ Run Club and Warner Bros.' Looney Tunes, help athletes conquer the Nike "Find Your Fast" challenge.   

That’s Speed Folks!

Nike+ Run Club has teamed up with Warner Bros.' iconic Looney Tunes to create a squad of Zoom Pace Setters to motivate runners of all levels to go faster and have more fun as they take on the Nike "Find Your Fast" challenge.  

Part of the greater Nike "Find Your Fast" campaign, the challenge encourages athletes to train together with Nike+ Run Club on the way to achieving their fastest mile. The eight-week challenge was developed by expert Nike+ Run Club coaches and includes workouts, music and tips to help runners run the distance faster. The final day, or finish line, on August 30 is anticipated to be the fastest day in Nike+ history. Notably, Nike will turn Nike+ miles into dollars by donating to organizations around the world that encourage kids to be physically active.  

The Zoom Pace Setters

To keep runners motivated throughout their eight-week journey, the Zoom Pace Setters — Bugs Bunny, Lola Bunny, Sylvester, Tweety, Daffy, Taz, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner — will set the pace and provide tips and challenges, including three types of workouts based on speed, endurance and recovery.

There is also a tune-inspired Nike+ Run Club Spotify playlist created to increase speed at the beginning, middle and end of a run.

Week one of the training program kicked off July 5 with Bugs Bunny. The rascally rabbit got runners moving and introduced them to speed on the track.
