Philippines, December 1, 2013 – Nike enabled 14,000 Filipino runners today in the third edition of the Nike We Run Manila held at Marikina City. Bringing to life the Filipino spirit of unity, runners signed up in pairs to run 10km and stood in solidarity at the finish as a mark of respect to the recent events in Visayas region of Philippines.  

In honoring the Filipino spirit of unity, or samahan spirit, the race was a testament to Filipinos who encourage each other regardless in times of adversity or ambition. “The Nike We Run Manila 2013 serves runners by offering them a unique platform to run alongside a global community of runners. This year, we fueled the samahan spirit by encouraging runners to sign up and run the race together with a buddy for their fellow kababayan” says Courtney Cole-Faso, Country Marketing Manager of Nike Philippines.
