Nike We Run Singapore 2013 - 03 November

294 posts in this topic

I never liked Nike. Period.

However this year an ex-colleague convinced me to join Nike SheRuns 5K.

Being a loner runner that I am, decided to give it a go with open arms, legs and heart. :P

To cut story short I will never ever ever ever participate in any Nike runs anymore.

The route was so narrow, cone so small, many ladies tripped and fell.

OMG it was a nightmare!

The staff was rude too.

Even though Adidas KOTR broke my heart this year, I will still register again next year.

I can't say for Nike though.

Nevertheless, this is my personal opinion.

If you're a fan of Nike or just want to have fun running with your friends, JUST DO IT! :punk:

Hmm... very interesting marketing tactic from Nike. Intriguing indeed. Complete 3K run and you get a free entry slot. I wonder what they are trying to prove. But I didn't get the email though.

Wonder if anyone from here will be going down to Q. I won't be able to take part in this race though cause I have other commitments on the date.

Managed to sign up during lunch time at Nike Raffles Place as well.

Went around 1pm, and there wasn't much of a queue, which was quite a surprise for me.

Yeah missing this won't make a difference since its only a 10km run. But its FREEEEEEEEEE and thus need to show my Singaporean side lol.

Just kaypo a bit. The registration was opened n closed yesterday. According to the staff at Orchard Central, all slots were taken up and for the 3km run, if achieved, it will entitle you a free slot during the SG Nike Run 10k. Purely marketing gimmick but don't understand what o wish to achieve?

Hi there,

At least that was mentioned by the staff at the Nike outlet stations at Orchard Central. No flaming if it does not materialise.

got the promo code for the supposedly approx 3km route they touted. it was only 1.47km though on my runkeeper.

the race with options was quite interesting, but it ended all too quickly.

Queued up for the free 3km slot at Orchard Central on Tuesday once I saw it in the straits times newspaper...went to run at fort canning yesterday.... quite enjoyable.. haven't run in quite a while... didn't know it's 1.5km actually lol!

Saw the T-shirt design as some of the staff crew were wearing it.. quite nice.. red in colour though not crimson red like in 2009 (which was nice as well :))

Looking forward to the actual Nike run on Nov. 3 :)
