Do you love cold-weather training? #GetOutHere Nike Challenge

During the month of November, Nike is encouraging you to embrace the lovely weather and Get Out Here as part of their #GetOutHere Challenge. I was able to join them for a media workout this week, and YOU can join them for some awesome FREE workouts next week at Northerly Island.

Nike is also on an extensive search to find the 48 most weather-defying athletes to compete in the Get Out Here Challenge with the ultimate outdoor training and running workouts held in Chicago during the week of December 8th. Selected athletes will also receive Nike swag specifically designed for cold weather.

For the challenge, Nike is looking for the best stories of athletes training outdoors in the elements. To have the opportunity to be included in the Get Out Here Challenge, athletes can create and submit their own outdoor training photos and videos on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram utilizing the hashtags #GetOutHere and #Contest.

The 48 athletes with the most cold weather-defying outdoor training stories will earn a trip to the Get Out Here Challenge with the main event taking place December 12th. Upon selection, athletes will be featured on Photos and videos can be submitted until November 25th, and this is open to athletes beyond just Chicago. Learn more.

Whether you enter the contest or not, you can join free weekly outdoor training sessions and group runs. Every Nike+ event is complimentary and registration opens each Sunday at 2pm at

Nike provided me with swag and free media workouts with no obligation to talk about anything, however I decided this challenge sounds pretty neat and shared it with you. 

What’s your craziest winter-weather workout story? I recall a few cold and snowy long runs on the Old Plank Road Trail with the F’N Runners, complete with single-digit temps and Kelly slipping on ice.

  1. Yes I do! I have yet to slip and fall while running in the winter, yet I have fallen several times walking my dog. I enjoy the camaraderie from fellow runners if it is a particularly cold and windy day – the few runners that I encounter will wave or say “hi”. That’s not usually the case in warmer temps when things are more crowded.

  2. Hah, love that picture! Those guys look exhausted & you look strong. I’ll be coaching winter warriors with CES again this year. I wouldn’t be out there unless I had people to run with.
