So, I am either brave or stupid or maybe both! I have signed up the the Nike “We Own The Night” all women’s 10k night run! I am a rubbish runner with zero stamina (unlike my twin sisters who love pounding the pavements) but even the girls at Elle magazine are getting involved and not only is it for a good cause, it actually sounds bloody fun!
The 10k run will take place on May 10th in Victoria Park in London and 5 cities will all be simultaneously running as well. The route is said to be packed with light, music and women from the worlds of sport, TV, music and fashion cheering us on and providing entertainment and encouragement! As Team Elle says “Quite simply, it’s set to be the ultimate after-hours run”. Nike has offered all its sign ups downloadable running apps that come in beginner, intermediate and advanced levels too.
And if I haven’t convinced you so far, it was announced today that London jewellery designer Alex Monroe has collaborated with Nike to create the ‘We Own The Night’ necklace. A bespoke design created to celebrate all the women who pass the finish line! The necklace features gold, silver and bronze discs and is so chic. I will be wearing long after I finish the race.
So, if you fancy burning some cals, having a laugh and getting a gorgeous limited edition necklace as a well done gift then join me and sign up here 🙂 Registration is £28, £4 of which goes to Women Win to support US GIRLS STARZ to help 10 to 12 year-old girls from disadvantaged communitites build the skills and confidence they need to live an active lifestyle. You also get a free running T-shirt!
