Are you interested in what Nike looks for in a Nike Run Reporter? Here is how Nike.com describes the Nike Run Reporters role: “Nike RunReporters always have their kicks laced, hard-hitting questions ready, and personalities on. They're not always running fanatics; but they've always got a great stride and a super-cool personality to vibe with some of the biggest athletes in the game.
The Nike RunReporters' responsibilities include interviewing big-time Nike athletes, traveling to the country's biggest running events to provide video coverage (on Nike's dime, of course), and blogging about personal athletic experiences. They're cool with getting running tips from world-renowned Nike coach and marathoner Alberto Salazar one day and doing the electric slide at the finish line with long-distance runner Kara Goucher the next. And since Nike RunReporters are an integral part of the Nike crew, Nike provides them with the freshest gear so they can hit the ground running...every day.”
