Right before sunset on May 24, thousands of young women and their BFFs gathered at the starting line on the beach at Plötzensee to make Berlin their runway. The Berlin event marked the midway point of Nike’s We Own the Night women’s races, a series celebrating girl power, music, style and the fun of running. Spectacular lights, amazing sounds and an extraordinary course through areas never before entered by runners were just some surprises waiting for the girls. One of the highlights was Nike’s Power Track technology: A chip that makes it possible to identify runners during the race and deliver their favorite song on the course.

We Own the Night ambassador Jennifer Weist, the charismatic leader of Berlin band Jennifer Rostock, supported the six-week training phase prior to race day and joined the run to complete her first 10K:

 “The atmosphere really was breathtaking. And it wasn’t just because there was so much to see and experience, it was incredible to run with so many other young women, who all had their sights set on the same goal. It was the whole package that made it easy for me to finish the 10K – in my personal best!”

Welcomed by the beats of chart-breaking rapper Cro, the runners started to celebrate their unforgettable 10K running experience at the after party on the beach at Plötzensee.
