And it’s starting with the Nike Marathon.
This is the Nike Olympic Marathon in Chicago.
“The Marathon will be the first of three marathons in 2016 that will feature an all-star cast of athletes from across the world,” Nike said in a statement.
In a statement to The Wall Street Journal, Nike’s senior vice president of global retail, marketing, and public affairs, Alex Narducci, said the Marathon will “offer the world the ultimate in competition and entertainment” at the Olympic Games.
Nike has partnered with “the world’s premier marathoners,” including the Olympic champion, and “an array of world-class Olympic and Paralympic athletes” to bring the Marathon back to the United States.
As the only marathon race to feature the Olympic and World Paralympics, the Marathon “provides an unmatched opportunity to showcase athletes from all over the world as they compete for gold and glory,” according to Nike.
The marathon race will also feature a total of 11 courses.
A total of 10 of the course locations will be from the Nike London Marathon and the Nike Boston Marathon, which are being held at the same time.
These courses are “designed to allow spectators to experience an unparalleled marathon experience while participating in the Olympic, Paralympican, and World Marathon Trials,” according the Nike website.
From there, runners will be able to “experience the thrill of running the world’s most prestigious marathon in the heart of Chicago,” according Nike.
According to Nike, the marathon will be streamed live and “will be streamed across Nike+ and Nike+ GO,” according Toilz.
At the start of the marathon, runners are asked to “watch as they race through the course in their choice of Nike Marathon gear.”
The Nike Marathon will kick off with the event on Aug. 5.
Nike also announced that the Nike X-Games Marathon will take place on Aug, 8 and 10.
