Race Report: Nike We Own The Night 2014

Sharing is caring

Last weekend, thousands of women took over Victoria Park in London for the second edition of Nike’s We Own The Night – and of course we were there too. This women’s only 10k run is held at night, with music and light features along the course, and finishing with a big afterparty in the event village. Sadly the weather wasn’t quite up to scratch – heavy rain and wind for most of the day – but luckily it cleared up just in time for the evening run. If anything, the cold only made us want to run faster to the finish line, so perhaps not such a bad thing after all…

WOTN isn’t just any race – it’s a pretty damn special one. The collaboration between Nike and ELLE UK for the event ensured this was one of the most stylish runs around, meanwhile Equinox trainers led the runners in a fun pre-run warm up, there were DJ’s along the course and Nick Grimshaw entertained the finishers at the end party. Everyone received the gorgeous Alex Monroe necklace to remember this race by as well as a goodie bag with Kiehl’s samples and some Vita Coco to take home. Not too shabby, right? Not to forget the glass of bubbly at the end… just our style! The whole thing was perfectly organised and if it weren’t for the horrible weather, we would have hung around until the very end and danced the night away…

We invited a bunch of badass girls to join us on Team Fashercise – from seasoned runners to complete newbies – and each and every one of them kicked ass. Last year, this race was my (Alex) first ever 10k, and I had just started working on Fashercise, so to come back a year later with Cam as my partner and a bunch of lovely Fashercise girls was a lovely moment. We want Fashercise to not just be about us, but about every girl and boy who believes working out can be fun and social and stylish. Whatever your fitness levels, whatever your size, whatever your style, it doesn’t matter – as long as you’re having a great time doing it.

And that’s why we absolutely love We Own The Night; the friendliest, funnest race around. If you are looking for a first ever event to enter, this is absolutely the one to do. You can check out the other races in different cities around Europe here.

A massive thanks to Nike for taking us on the journey to WOTN – we had a great couple of months leading up to the race and can’t wait until next year now!
