Nike Run Club Dec 16, FatBird Photo Gallery
It was a fitting finale on a high note for the year at the Nike Run Club SG @ Nike's Flagship Store, Wisma Atria. What started out as a City Run in April 2009 has seen many runners join the fortnightly 5km runs along Orchard Road and into the sprawling grounds of The Botanic Gardens. Team FatBird who has led the runs, along with organizers Racers Toolbox and Nike Singapore, has witnessed many new runners join the 5km runs, interspersed with walks, and progressing to 10km races, half-marathons and even full marathons.
The pre-run briefings and post-run refreshments of iced cold milo, 100-plus, Subway sandwiches and cookies have been key motivators for the running enthusiasts to put in good workouts to relieve stress and get those blood pumping through the tired bodies after a long day at work or school. With the final Nike Run SG accomplished in cool weather, attended by a good turnout in a festive setting, we can bid 2009 a cheerful goodbye and in the words of the Nike spokeperson, "look forward to the new year for even bigger and possibly more exciting Nike Run Club SG" in 2010. 3 Cheers for Nike Run Club SG...Hip Hip Hooray!
