Singapore, Thursday, October 8, 2009 – The Nike+ Human Race 10K route for 2009 will see runners start and end at the F1 Pit Building.

The route will take runners along Nicoll Highway and all the way out to the Singapore Indoor Stadium, the 5km mark.

The return route will have runners hit Geylang Road, the 7km mark and the race will wind down along Republic Boulevard.

About 600 runners have signed up for the charity Guys vs Girls Challenge led by actor Tay Ping Hui and singer Rui En.

Each gender is aiming to clock the most number of kilometers in the weeks leading to the Nike+ Human Race 10K in order to earn a donation from Nike to their charity.

Mr Glenn Heng, Marketing Manager, Nike Southeast Asia and Singapore said: "We hope to give runners an unparalleled running experience during this year's Nike+ Human Race by combining their love for music and a very unique 10km race route, starting and ending at the F1 track."

"City runs are increasingly popular among runners, and we would like to thank the Singapore Tourism Board for working with us to bring the race to the heart of the city, where runners can take in iconic local sights such as the Singapore Flyer," he added.

The race is slated for Saturday, October 24th, 7am.

Race entry pack collection will be held from October 16th to 18th, from 10am to 7pm, at the Singapore Flyer.
