The Nike+ Human Race: The Day the World Stopped to Run is the story of the biggest running event ever—a worldwide 10K that took place in 25 cities around the world on August 31, 2008. Filled with intense race-day photography and unforgettable stories, this deluxe book captures the inspiring scale of the race, while also making it intimately accessible. Contributions include images by world-famous photographers Michael Grecco, Phil Cote, and Quinn Rooney, and pieces by Lance Armstrong and several noted running personalities. In a foreword, marathon great Alberto Salazar discusses how Nike’s deep roots in the sport keyed an event of such sweeping proportions. Marathoner Don Kardong explains how training has changed his life. And acclaimed running authority Kenny Moore’s afterword testifies to the burning desire at the heart of every runner.
Runners around the world were able to order individual custom editions of Nike+ Human Race with themselves or a loved one on the dustjacket. With raceday photos and uploads of their personal snapshots to the Nike+ Human Race website, runners were able to design their own full-color covers.
