Nike launches night race for women

Nike has launched a rare locally-made marketing campaign.

The female-targeted initiative, titled ‘She runs the night’, is based around a night race for women.

The 13km race will take be held in Centennial Park Sydney on the evening of 3 May 2012. Ladies can register for the event on Nike’s Facebook page.

The campaign – devised by US Sydney – involves print, outdoor and online films, which are linked to via QR codes on the print ads.

Juliana Nguyen, Nike Pacific’s marketing director, said: “Nike wanted to motivate women to lace-up and discover the excitement and enjoyment of night running with their friends. She Runs The Night will inspire women to run together around an iconic Sydney venue, Centennial Park, and celebrate night running in a safe environment.”

“It’s really important to us that this race is owned by the grassroots female running community of Sydney. Our entire campaign is about telling their stories and making them the heroes,” added Us Sydney ECD Christy Peacock.
