Nike’s “We Own The Night” women-only 10k run was held in London’s Victoria Park last Saturday, mixing together a great running location with a party atmosphere which will helpfully inspire many more women to take up running.

We’ve mentioned the event on here before, and it’s fantastic to see it was such a success. Runners joined celebrities including London Marathon winner Paula Radcliffe to take part in the race through East London as the sun set.

Prior to the race, there was a fantastic party atmosphere, the factor which sets these runs apart from other daytime races, and something it’s clear to see will become part of many more events in the future. A multi-coloured route saw participants run to the sound of disco music, accompanied by smoke machines and glowsticks all the way round

Radcliffe stated, “It’s amazing to see such a young and inspiring group of women coming together to celebrate their newfound love of running. This has been a truly unique six-week training journey and I’m delighted to be here to celebrate with the girls on race day.”

Roll on the next event!
