More than 200,000 women worldwide conquered their first half marathon, 10k or Nike+ Training Club (NTC) challenge as part of the 2015 Nike Women’s Event Series. This year, Nike once again invites athletes of all levels to challenge themselves and experience the power of the global fitness community via a series of one-of-a-kind running and training events – each part of the NikeWomen Victory Tour and NikeWomen Weeks around the globe.
Inspired by Nike, the winged goddess of victory, the NikeWomen Victory Tour is the largest women’s event series in the world. Moreover, it celebrates personal victories through sport, inspiring athletes to push themselves and be Better For It. The tour kicks off March 13 in Nagoya, Japan, and comprises 10k to marathon Nike+ Run Club (NRC) Races, five-hour-long NTC Tour training experiences and unique NRC and NTC events. The 2016 tour runs through September and stops in cities around the world, including Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai and Los Angeles, the site of Joan Benoit Samuelson’s milestone victory in 1984, when the women’s marathon became an Olympic event.
