The National Running Show is delighted to announce the addition of two more speakers to its line up – Luke Tyburski and Barefoot Aleks Kashefi! We’re also pleased to add 3 new exhibitors: BackBaller, BookitZone, and Ledlenser, who join our 16 existing exhibitors for the inaugural Show in January 2018.

Aleks Kashefi started running at the end of July 2012, having spent a large portion of his life being sedentary. He soon moved to minimalist and barefoot running in search of a more efficient form and now is curious to find out just what can be achieved without the use of conventional running shoes. His achievements include running Land’s End to John O’Groats barefoot in 2015 and becoming the first person to have run the entire length of the European continent in 2017, having decided to start his 6 months long run from deep in the Arctic Circle, at the end of summer, self supported and in his trusty Luna sandals.

Luke Tyburski is an endurance adventurer, motivational speaker, and health & wellness coach, who draws on his own unique experiences to inspire others to dream big, get out of their comfort zone, and live life! Luke travelled the world playing football in his 20’s, until injury forced him to retire, triggering a dark & lonely ongoing battle with clinical depression; his salvation was discovering the world of extreme endurance sport.

The BackBaller is a dual mounted foam rolling device. It is specifically designed to self-treat muscles in your upper and lower back. Due to the stability and control offered it goes beyond and is now the foremost product to knead out all muscle groups. With celebrity endorsements from Kerry O’Flaherty, Gerard Hartmann, and Sonia O’Sullivan, the BackBaller has proven to be both effective and popular amongst runners.
