What is The Running Event? 

Launched in 2006, The Running Event (TRE) is North America’s premier run and outdoor specialty retail conference and trade show. Each year, it attracts thousands of industry professionals seeking the latest in footwear, apparel, gear, and services. In 2022, TRE launched Switchback at The Running Event: an exhibit hall expansion showcasing outdoor brands. With numerous opportunities for peer learning, interactive and forward-looking conference programming, and dynamic product demonstration and discovery, TRE is the can’t-miss trade show for run and outdoor specialty. 
The running and outdoor industries thrive on connection—something that has become even more evident over the last few years. We can’t wait to come together in-person at TRE, taking place November 19-21, 2024 in Austin, Texas!
