This week starts the countdown to the biggest and most popular marathon in the world. From elite athletes to first-time racers, over 50,000 runners will test the limits of their minds and bodies as they conquer 26.2 miles across the 5 boroughs. The buzz in the city around this incredible event has Uber pretty inspired to lace up their shoes and take a different route through the streets of New York—one that explores this amazing city in a new way—on foot. Since you can’t cross over the race finish line in an Uber (that’s cheating), Uber has teamed up with the Nike+ Run Club to kickstart your running journey and help you tap into your inner-athlete—literally. With the tap of a button, you’ll be connected with expert Nike+ Run Club Pacers and led through a personalized running session tailored to your ability level. That’s right, your Uber request will be running straight to your doorstep on Saturday, along with some Nike gear to make sure you can suit up for your next run. Whether you have 2 or 26.2 miles in your sights, as long as you have a goal, we’ll bring you a guide. After all, everyone’s a runner. So don’t second guess yourself—just do it. And if your legs are tired afterwards, well, then you can just Uber it.
Make sure you have entered the Uber Nike promo code RUNNYC to unlock the special pacer view. Request your Uber Nike Run Club pacer between 8am-1pm on Saturday October 31, 2015 for your personal running sessions. 2 Nike+ Run Club Pacers will arrive to your location for a personalized running session. You can expect to do some running-specific dynamic stretching to get you warmed up and a 2-3 mile run that will end at your starting location. Sessions are free and topped off with some Nike gear to keep you warm for cold weather training. Whether you’re going on a pre-race shakeout run, or lacing up your shoes for the first time since high school, Nike+ Run Club Pacers will tailor your session to your ability level—you set the expectations, they’ll set the pace. Want to bring a friend? Sessions can include up to 2 runners per request, so grab your workout bud and gear up. Nike+ Run Club Pacers can be requested from 8am-1pm between 72nd St and 14th St in Manhattan.
