Over the last 18 months Aussies across the country have been living in an ever-changing landscape, through gym closures, at-home workouts, limited movement and not knowing what’s around the corner. Through all of this, the ability to lace up your shoes and go for a run has been a consistent option that is both safe and accessible. From the experienced runners, through to the weekend warriors, or those just starting on their running journey, Nike wants to help all athletes* achieve their fitness goals and keep sport a daily habit. To help all runners stay on track, reach their personal goal, set a new goal, or run their dream distance this year, Nike has created 4x free and bespoke training plans, utilising the Nike Run Club App and its Audio Guided Runs. They are as follows:
- 8-week training program to run a 5km race/distance
- 8-week training program to run a 10km race/distance
- 14-week training program to run a half marathon
- 14-week training program to run a marathon
These programs were developed to help support Aussies on their journey towards the Nike Melbourne Marathon Festival on October 10. The event is set to celebrate the power of sport to bring communities together and will spotlight Melbourne – the city of movement and sport – with an extraordinary finish line experience inside the MCG. The Nike Melbourne Marathon Festival will provide a range of distances for participants from a full marathon, half marathon, 10km, 5km and even a 3km course. If consumers can’t physically attend the event but still want to set themselves a running challenge this year, all of Nike’s training programs are free to download as well as the NRC and the Nike Training App, which has over 185 Nike Master Trainer workouts to compliment your running journey.
