Athletics: USC Toga Run Kicks-Off Human Race in Los Angeles

Last night 500 USC students in red togas took to the streets to run 0.9 miles to announce the 2009 Nike Human Race in LA. This year, USC will host the Nike+ Human Race 2009, a 5k/10k worldwide running event back for its second year. The USC race will take place at 12:01 AM, and run through the streets of LA, starting and finishing at the LA Coliseum! This multi-city event will take place on October 24, 2009 celebrating the sport of running by giving runners everywhere the opportunity to run together.

Race participants earn a Nike DriFit race tee, entry into the ultimate Nike pre-game tailgate for the USC-Oregon State football game, and $5 of the registration fee goes toward Coach Carroll's A Better LA charity.

Nike-hosted Human Race events will be held in more than 24 cities from New York City to Los Angeles, Buenos Aires to Rome. Through Nikeplus.com, every city and every road can become a race day course. By combining the virtual running world with the physical, the Nike+ Human Race is open to anyone, anywhere!
