Lace Up and Get Motivated! Nike We Run KL 10K 2012 Race Pack Collection Day

Friday evening I was at the Nike We Run KL 10K 2012 Race Pack Collection Tent. I reached there around 5pm, lucky that the crowd at the collection area was not that huge anymore. I heard that earlier about 12pm to 2pm was really pack and the queue was long. Managed to ask a few people and friends around there the collection was systematic and quite fast. 

Runners participating in this year’s Nike We Run 10K KL collects their race packs at a small-scale exposition held at the Piazza, the Curve (located in front of E@curve), Mutiara Damansara from 5thto 7th Oct 2012 between 10am and 9.30pm.

This year 15, 000 runners all set to take over Kuala Lumpur in Nike’s first ever evening run. During race pack collection, there are activities to engage the runners into gettting ready for the race.

Treadmill Challenge
Take on the treadmill challenge and share your Nike Mission achievement via the Nike+ Running Application on their personal facebook and twitter (#WERUN #kKL) accounts, and connecting with runners around the world.

lt is also an opportunity to trial one of this season, running shoe, the Nike Lunarglide+4 Shield. I have tried and run in it, 1 word it is fantastic! I like the cushioning, the shoes is so light plus I love the colors.

T-shirt Customization
You stand out among the 15,000 participants with t-shirt customization services available during race pack collection day. Runners who have participated and completed Nike+ Missions set on facebook and twitter – “Rock your Run”, “High miler” and “The Super Runner” - will earn badges that  can be applied onto their race t-shirts. Application of the badge is offered to all registered We Run KL 10K 2012 runners who have participated and completed the Nike+ Missions.

Food and beverage will be sold to participants of them to refuel and recharge after the run. There will also be fun photo-booths to take pictures with their friends to mark the memorable evening.
