Nike recently updated their popular Nike+GPS running app a few days ago, bringing it to version 4.3. The update includes handful of improvements and one new BIG feature - NIKE+ CHALLENGES.
With this fun new update you can now challenge your friends to a race. Set the distance and finish date, send an invite to another Nike+ users, and the app will track each of your runs to see who hits the goal first.
Here are the release notes for 4.3:

Give it a try and if you find it's not for you, you can opt out of the challenge. The update is great for recreational runners to up their game up :)
