The show expects more than 55,000 visitor ticket registrations for 2020, all of whom will be able to discover the latest kit, tech, nutrition and races from over 250 exhibitors, learn from inspiring speakers and improve their running technique thanks to the hands-on feature areas.

We are committed to providing an extensive choice for everyone visiting the show, and the 2020 event will offer the greatest number of retail opportunities yet. From the latest running apparel through to events, nutrition, sports health and performance, we have something for everyone. The National Running Show Birmingham is deliberately timed so that runners can come and look round, try out products and make their decisions ahead of race season. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the NEC in January!”
