The Bobblechoge challenge runs nationwide on August 31st at 6:30 PM (local time). RSVP HERE & details below. (It's free!)
The year was 2003. The last day in August in Paris, the unofficial end of summer, the men's IAAF World Championships 5000m Final was on the line at 6:30PM local time. Among the stacked field toeing the line was the world record holder in the mile, Hicham El Guerrouj, Ethiopian distance great and defending World Cross Country Champion Kenenisa Bekele, and an unknown teenager named Eliud Kipchoge. 12.5 laps and 12 minutes and 52.79 seconds later, Eliud Kipchoge would earn himself his first global championship and gold medal.
In celebration of this remarkable moment in Kipchoge's rise, Heartbreak and Nike are hosting a free and fun event at tracks across the USA where athletes will test their speed or their Kipchoge knowledge to win a limited edition, world exclusive Kipchoge Bobblehead in an event we've dubbed "Bobble-choge".
Athletes will gather at one of the locations listed below and run for 12 minutes & 52 seconds, who ever runs the farthest in the time will win a Bobblechoge. Following the run, THREE (3) MORE Bobblechoges will be given out for correct answers to Kipchoge trivia questions. You have your assignment, train-up & study hard to go big with Bobblechoge!
