Nike+iPod Runners Run 1 Million Miles (and counting)

Nike announced yesterday that runners using the Nike+iPod sport kit have logged over 1 million miles. As a reference, 1 million miles is long enough to circle the globe more than 40 times.

" is fast becoming the world's biggest online running community," said Trevor Edwards, Nikes chief marketing officer. "Nike+ is a new running experience, a new way to train, a new way to connect with other runners, and a new way to bring music and sport together like never before. A million miles in 10 weeks is just the beginning. We're looking forward to the billionth mile."

Nike will be expanding the Nike+ service to more markets in Europe, including France, Spain, Italy, Germany and The Netherlands, as well as Japan and Australia in October. Currently, there are 12 Nike+ shoes available with more to come. Also noted are a few enhancements that will be coming soon to, including a route finder so runners can easily map and share their favorite running routes.
