New Nike Women’s Event Series challenges women to race and train to new levels
January 20, 2015
Nike Women’s Race Series and N+TC Tour set course to major cities around the world such as Toronto, London and Hong Kong in 2015.
With the new year underway, Nike introduces fresh motivation for women looking for a challenge with the new Nike Women’s Event Series. The series — which includes the Nike Women’s Race Series and N+TC Tour — invites more than 200,000 women around the world to celebrate and experience the power of sport through a series of one-of-a-kind, high-energy running and training events.
The series kicks off March 8 with the Nagoya Women’s Marathon and N+TC Tour Shanghai and wraps this fall with the Nike Women’s Half Marathon San Francisco.
Expanding the Vision
“We started over a decade ago with the inaugural Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco, and now the Nike Women’s Event Series is expanding that vision to bring the inspiration and camaraderie we find at local races and gyms to women all over the world,” says running legend Joan Benoit Samuelson, winner of the first-ever Olympic gold medal in women’s marathon. “The Nike Women's Race Series motivates women to achieve personal running goals, and N+TC Tour offers challenge, variety and reward for athletes at any level. The choices and access for women who love sport and fitness are better than ever with the announcement of the Nike Women’s Event Series.”
