The National Running Show has announced the latest exhibitors and partners to sign up to its highly anticipated debut event at the NEC, Birmingham, on 20th and 21st January 2018.
The new exhibitors are My Sports and More, 12in12, Manuka Sports and Buggy Running, with Runfies the newest partner to come on board.
The first national non-race affiliated expo for the UK’s 10.5 million runners, The National Running Show is set to be the event to attend for runners of all ages and abilities. The impressive line-up of exhibitors includes race organisers and sports retailers through to nutrition experts and online communities, all of which will be relevant to athletes as they plan their year of running.
Of the new exhibitors, My Sports and More is an online sports retailer focusing on customer service and quality. Selling a wide range of sports clothing and accessories for adults and juniors, My Sports and More also specialises in the hire of GoPro cameras and unique branded apparel for sport.
12in12 is an inspirational online community encouraging its members to walk, jog or run 12 events in 12 months. With the aim of getting everyone to have fun and keep active, rather than stop after one race, members can mix and match their events, log their progress online and receive support from 12in12’s fully qualified coaches and growing community.
Inspired by the many natural health and energy-giving properties of Manuka honey, Manuka Sport was created to offer the sporting community user-friendly formats for consuming this wonder honey. Products use manuka honey sourced from New Zealand and provide athletes with a great-tasting and easily consumable natural source of energy and electrolytes. The range is expanding to include energy gels, a hydration energy drink and a recovery high protein drink.
Buggy Running is an independent online shop for running buggies and takes all the hassle out of searching for the right buggy. Founded by lifelong runner and dad Mark Ford, Buggy Running offers customers the unique chance to test and compare running buggies before they buy, with comprehensive information on the benefits and preferred terrain of each buggy on the market.
The newest partner, Runfies of the world, is a Facebook group with an active member’s area where people from around the world share their ‘runfies’. A selfie taken before, during or after a run, the ‘runfie’ has become an easy way of showing others the places you get to run, the scenery you get to run through, the medals you earn and the highs and lows of running.
Mike Seaman, Director of Racoon Events, commented: “We are thrilled to welcome our latest line-up of exhibitors to The National Running Show. These great brands and communities will make the show a must-do event for anyone with any interest in running, as each offers something to enhance a runner’s journey, no matter their ability. Many of these names are already well known in the running industry and it will be exciting to have them all under one roof in January”.
Already secured as partners for The National Running Show are some of the UK’s most trusted running brands and communities, including UKRunChat, Run Mummy Run, Men’s Running Magazine, Women’s Running Magazine, Race Solutions, Xtra Mile Events and more.
