Ealing Half Marathon, MedalMad and Vegan Runners confirmed for The National Running Show

Three additional names have been confirmed for The National Running Show, which takes place on 20th and 21st January 2018 at the NEC, Birmingham.

The latest partner to come on board is Ealing Half Marathon, whilst MedalMad and Vegan Runners have been confirmed as exhibitors. They will be joining an impressive line-up of race organisers, sports retailers, motivational speakers, nutrition experts and online communities who will aim to inspire and inform runners pre-race season at the show.

The multi award-winning Ealing Half Marathon is a firm fixture in the running calendar and is well known for its huge community support, lively atmosphere and the #EalingFeeling . Introduced in the Olympic year as a legacy to the Games, the race is now in its sixth year and the last entries for the 2017 event on 24th September are selling fast.

MedalMad is part of Active Connections Group, an award-winning Social Enterprise, and is designed to inform, inspire and support people through challenges. All people need to do to be part of this challenge community is register, choose a virtual race or challenge, and submit their evidence to receive their bespoke medal.

Vegan Runners UK is a friendly UKA affiliated running club made up of vegans from all over the UK and beyond. VRUK was launched at the London Vegan Festival on 4 July 2004 for vegans of all running abilities to raise awareness of veganism throughout the UK and to provide a focus for current vegans with an interest in running.

Mike Seaman, Director of Racoon Events, commented: “We are delighted to welcome
