Launched in 2006, The Running Event (TRE) is North America’s largest running specialty trade show, offering three days of networking, education, business, and celebration to retailers and event management professionals from across the US.
In 2022, TRE expanded with Switchback at The Running Event. In addition to expanding the TRE exhibit hall, Switchback at TRE was bolstered by actionable education and lively networking opportunities—delivering greater support and opportunity to both outdoor and run specialty retailers.
Switchback at TRE exhibitors represented the brands leading the way in outdoor specialty. Here’s who was there:
The Running Event already had a strong foundation of exhibiting brands that sell into outdoor specialty. From market-leading companies to up-and-coming brands, these exhibitors brought innovation and excitement to the trade show floor.

In partnership with Strava, The Running Event created Strides for Progress: A Strava challenge taking place during #TRE22. We challenged the running industry to run, walk, or complete other activities to reach a collective distance goal of 35,000 miles. Together, we unlocked donations to five Texas-based nonprofits.
Impactful sustainability measures onsite limit single-use plastics and non-recyclables; donations to local non-profits further reduce waste and cheer the community.
