Nike Helps KC Find Its Fast

Nike’s new “Find Your Fast” campaign comes to KC.

Nike is showing KC some love this week with two free workouts kicking off the “Find Your Fast” campaign, which challenges everyone to run their fastest mile.

Kansas Citians got an introduction to the challenge, which includes an eight-week training program using Nike+ Run Club with workouts, music for motivation and expert tips to get you running faster and better, earlier this week. The club hosted its first KC session at Liberty Memorial.

The Nike+ Running app’s July 20 update allows users to stream Spotify.

Saturday, July 25, it’s all about strength for Nike+ Training Club’s first KC workout. Led by Nike+ Master Trainer Flor Beckmann, the sweat session at Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts is a high-intensity training workout inspired by sports. (Register here.) A post workout celebration will include refreshments and a special Nike Women fashion show featuring FC Kansas City athletes.

If you find yourself hooked after the workouts, download the Nike+ apps to keep up with your training, and stay tuned for more Nike offerings in KC. If you made it to one of Nike’s Style Guide Live events earlier in the summer or have spotted one of its empowering messages pained on KC trails, you might already know the powerhouse company is looking to connect with our town.
