It’s not always easy to locate the motivation for a run. Nike’s N+RC app is one way to find it in your pocket. Even then, the mood doesn’t always strike. But what if your run finished with a feast care of Broadsheet, as well as the chance to earn a trip to LA with a friend to take part in an exclusive Nike-led run?
To celebrate the release of its latest innovation Epic React, Nike is hosting a 10-kilometre run down the CA-90, a major LA highway in the city’s famed movie-making district of Culver City.
That’s where Broadsheet comes in. We’re partnering with Nike to select two lucky winners and their running mates to fly to LA and take part in the epic four-day experience with Nike, including the 10-kilometre run.The trip includes flights, accommodation and on-ground transport in LA.
There are two ways to win.
Get the app
Download the N+RC app, log a run, share it with friends and include 25 words or less about why you want to run in LA. Tag #nikereact and #choosegola. A winner will be judged based on creativity and originality.
