In partnership with Strava, The Running Event has created Strides for Progress: A Strava challenge taking place during #TRE22. We will challenge the running industry to run, walk, or complete other activities to reach a collective distance goal of 35,000 miles. Together, we will unlock donations to 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.
Each year, the Best Running Stores program recognizes the run specialty retailers who go above and beyond for customer service and community. In 2022, The Running Event will host the awards dinner onsite, celebrating all winning stores, unveiling the Store of the Year, and giving leading brands the opportunity to recognize select retailers with industry awards.
