Nike Launches NikeWomen Victory Tour Race Series

Following last December’s announcement that its wildly popular women’s half marathon would not be returning to San Francisco in 2016, Nike revealed a new race series on Tuesday called the NikeWomen Victory Tour that will kick off on March 13 in Nagoya, Japan.

The new NikeWomen Victory Tour consists of 10K to marathon Nike+ Run Club (NRC) Races, five-hour-long NTC Tour training experiences and other unique events. It runs through September and stops in 20 cities around the world—most of which have hosted (or will host) the Summer Olympics—including Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai and Tokyo. The American cities listed include Los Angeles and Atlanta.

“Inspired by Nike, the winged goddess of victory, the NikeWomen Victory Tour is the largest women’s event series in the world,” Nike said in a press release. “Moreover, it celebrates personal victories through sport, inspiring athletes to push themselves and be better for it.”

Each NRC Race will feature a range of perks and experiences, including new race courses and services such as access to NRC Coaches, bra fitting and product trials. The NTC Tour stops will include a variety of workouts led by Nike Master Trainers. Cities not hosting NRC Races or NTC Tour stops will invite women to experience unique running or training events with Nike Master Trainers, NRC Coaches or elite athletes. Registration opens January 29 for most cities.
