This is the sixth consecutive year that Nike and the Tel Aviv Municipality are holding the Night Run, and organizers hope that as many as 20,000 runners from all over Israel will join the race, which starts at Rabin Square and ends at the Sportek center in the Yarkon Park.
The entry fee for this year's race remains the same: NIS 120 for early registration (until September 1) and NIS 150 for those who sign up after that date. All participants receive a Nike Dri Fit race shirt and timing chip, as well as a 20% discount on Nike running products purchased in the company's stores.

Runners can sign up for the race on the Nike Night Run 2012 website. The registration deadline is 3pm, October 9.
The theme of this year's race is Set Your Goal and Beat It. Runners can identify a personal goal – such as completing the race for the first time or setting a personal best – and Nike will try to help them reach it.
Each week, Nike hosts three running practices under the auspices of its Nike+ Run Club, dedicated to helping runners at all levels make running a part of their lives. The practices are held regularly in three cities: in Tel Aviv on Tuesday evenings, in Haifa on Thursday evenings and in Jerusalem on Sunday evenings. The practices are led by professional coaches and are free.
