Want to help us make NRC history? Join us and Nike in our attempt to break the two hour marathon!
How do we plan to do this? In a relay! Naperville Running Company and Nike are putting together a group to collectively run 105 laps around North Central College's track in an effort to average 4:34 minutes per mile and break two hours!
In our attempt, runners who are part of the relay will have the opportunity to run 25/50/100/200 or 400 meters, trying to keep up with our pacer (who is on a bike). No matter how long you choose to run, you will then hand off the baton to the next runner. Runners will be grouped by their estimated pace and the distance they choose to run. The projected average goal of 4:34 pace is as follows:
400 meters (one lap) = 68 seconds
200 meters = 34 seconds
100 meters = 17 seconds
50 meters = 8 seconds (ish)
Join us for an incredible opportunity to make history - and pick up some cool Nike swag in the process!
