Novel Coronavirus Updates


It is with great disappointment that we have to bring you the news that we will not be able to meet in person, as intended in 2020.

Due to ongoing health and safety issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become necessary to cancel the 2020 edition of The Running Event that was scheduled to take place on December 1-3, 2020 in Austin, TX.

Despite some re-opening measures nationally and locally, there are still far too many uncertainties about the impact that COVID-19 will have on travel and mass gatherings this December. Accordingly, it is impossible to hold an event that would provide a valuable experience for the run specialty industry.

Looking ahead:

We are happy to announce that we plan to return to Austin for The Running Event from November 30 – December 2, 2021.

We do not want to wait until the next edition of The Running Event to see you all again, so our team is also moving forward with plans for a Spring 2021 event that will allow you to conduct business in a safe and productive way. Please stay tuned for further communications from our team, as we seek your valuable input on that opportunity.

We sincerely thank everyone in the run specialty community for their continued support as we navigate these difficult times and we look forward to providing a better-than-ever experience for all at the 15th edition of The Running Event!

 Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or feedback.
