TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3 | 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Let’s kick off the first night of The Running Event with a Happy Hour!

Industry Awards Party

Don’t forget to buy your ticket for this one! This year, we’re throwing out the seating chart! Don’t worry, we’ll still be honoring some of the best in the industry, but for 2019, think more “fun cocktail party” and less “formal dinner”.

Indie 5K
XC Edition

Bring your favorite cross country shoes and your competitive spirit. We’re heading back out to a golf course for this year’s Indie 5K. As always, the event’s only chip-timed race and post-race expo is free to all attendees and exhibitors. Just remember to select the “Indie 5K” when you register!

Speed Networking
Retailer/Vendor Meetings

We are giving you three different chances to fit Speed Networking into your afternoon. Choose one of the designated hour time slots and get 5 minutes with 12 different vendors. We’ll send out a survey shortly before the event so you can select your time slot.

Wide World of Run Wednesday
Day 1 of Training Camp at TRE

On Wednesday we’ll feature bite-sized learning opportunities on a variety of topics from the whole Wide World of Run. Stay tuned for more details as the program develops.

Trailhead Thursday
Day 2 of Training Camp at TRE
