Following the unveiling of the Prime Minister’s roadmap out of lockdown, the National Running Show has today announced that it is moving its inaugural National Running Show South event to Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 July 2021. The event will take place at Farnborough International and is set to welcome runners of all abilities for a packed weekend of inspiration, kit, tech and connection.

Originally due to take place 5 – 6 June 2021, the event has been moved by six weeks to follow the date line for the easing of all restrictions set out by Government on Tuesday 22 February 2021.

The show, open to runners of all abilities, will feature an Inspiration Stage, Running Skills Theatre, Ultra Zone with Bad Boy Running, Live Kitchen with Kate Percy, Strength Zone with Endure Stronger, Events Village with Race Nation, Bra Bar with Runderwear, Trail Running Zone with We Run Trail, Recovery Zone with Therabody, Pace Yourself feature with Xempo and Kids Zone with Marathon Kids.

Mike Seaman, CEO at Raccoon Events commented: “I simply cannot wait to get back to a live event and am so excited that we can finally stage a National Running Show again! We have continuously said that we will only run shows when it is safe to do so and with hugs and high 5s all round! That still holds true. The government has a stated aim for restrictions to end from 21 June which is amazing! Our new dates are on the 17-18 July, which also gives us a 4-week cushion.  I believe that face-to-face human contact is crucial for us all and I believe that the National Running Show is an important event for the running community that we the organisers have a duty to deliver.

“I am delighted that the government have recognised the importance of events and have delivered a clear plan for large scale events to resume safely in the summer. Thank you to the entire running community for supporting us throughout the last year, we are incredibly grateful and I am beyond excited about seeing you all in July!”
