In just 10 days Nike will host 30,000 women as they take on San Francisco’s vistas and hills for the 10th-anniversary Nike Women’s Marathon on Oct. 20.

To commemorate the milestone, Nike announced the launch of the Nike X Collection and showcase trunk in collaboration with New York-based artist Kate McCollough.

Since the inaugural Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco in 2004, more than 250,000 female runners have rallied together to run in San Francisco and in the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in Washington, DC, which began in 2013. 

“The Nike Women’s Marathon is our moment to celebrate female athletes from around the world,” said Whitney Chapman, Nike VP/GM of Women’s in North America.

“The Nike X Collection and Trunk embody the strength, beauty and spirit of all the women who have run the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco since its inception, honoring their passion and commitment to play by their own rules and push boundaries—both in sport and in life.”

The Nike Women's Matathon 10th anniversary X Collection is presented in a custom, one-of-a-kind showcase trunk designed by Kate McCollough in collaboration with Nike.

“Inspiration from this project came from Bricolage, a genre of art I’ve been wanting to experiment with, where every piece has purpose within the larger installation,” said Kate McCollough, X Collection trunk designer and artist.

“We wanted to create something beautiful and luxurious that every female runner wants and needs. There is an air of decadence and unwavering confidence that meets the practicality and vigor of the women who run the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco.”

NIKE X COLLECTION

Launching Oct. 16, 2013 on Nike.com and at Nike San Francisco, the Nike X Collection combines iconic women’s training, running and sportswear silhouettes.

Each piece in the Nike X Collection features the Roman numeral for 10: X. The X represents the triumphs of all the women who have run the race since 2004.

Apparel: Nike Women’s Marathon Tech Fleece Hoodie, Nike Women’s Marathon Hyperwarm Hybrid Top, Nike Women’s Marathon Aeroloft Vest, Nike Women’s Marathon Element Flash Jacket X Collection, Nike Women’s Marathon Pro Core II Tight and Nike Women’s Marathon Pro Essential 2.5” Short.
