Nike Lights Up The Night With First LED Running Track

Nike just built the world's first LED running track in Manila that allows runners to race against themselves and get lap-by-lap feedback.

Nike is taking a nighttime approach to track running with its interactive pop-up track in Manila, Philippines. They’re calling it “the world’s first LED running track,” and runners can participate in a virtual race against themselves on it.

How does it work? The 200-meter long stadium is constructed of a wall of LED screens in the shape of a shoe, which projects an avatar of yourself after running an initial lap time and while donning a sensor on your shoe. Runners can then compete against their avatar around the track with personalized lap-by-lap feedback on pacing and other stats.

Forget stopwatches, this is the track of the future.
