Nearly 5,000 women gathered together to run in Nike’s “Be Amazing” 5K race in the Beijing on June 21. This was the first women-only race in China, continuing Nike’s commitment to inspire and motivate runners. The pop singer ELLA (from S.H.E.) also joined the ranks to encourage women to run and stay active.

Prior to race day, all registered runners enjoyed an exclusive two-day pre-race Expo in Beijing’s hottest shopping area, Sanlitun, to retrieve their race packs and take away training tips to help them get ready. After the race on Sunday the finishers celebrated at a musical concert.
