How many of you got tuned in to Breaking2 this weekend? Just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple days or so, Breaking2 was an event held by Nike that gathered three of the best marathon runners in the world to see if they’re able to run an entire marathon (26.2 miles) in under 2 hours. Although all three came up short, Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge, gold-medalist at the Rio Olympics only missed the 2 hour mark by a mere 25 seconds, which is pretty freaking impressive if you ask me (or anybody).
Today Nike announced the release of the Nike VaporFly Elite. This new Nike shoe, which was worn by all three runners and was developed specifically for the world record attempt, is said to be Nike’s most advanced running shoe that they’ve ever created. You want a pair? Tough luck, they’re not for sale. But, there is a way you can win a pair. Check this. Being that the shoe was built for this world record attempt, only three US men’s sizes: 8, 9 and 10. If you want to be the proud owner of one of those three options, here’s what you need to do:
“First, download the Nike+ Run Club app. Then, run a global 5k with us for Just Do It. Sunday on May 7th or 14th (or both). That’s it. You’ll be entered into a drawing to win a free pair of Vaporfly Elites. This is your chance to own the fastest shoes money can’t buy. So mark your calendars, set a reminder or two, and we’ll see you on Sunday.”
