Runners of all abilities will now be able to plan their entire 2021 running calendar under one roof, with the launch of the first ever Events Village in partnership with RaceNation, at The National Running Show Birmingham on 30-31 January 2021.  Hosting thousands of running events, the Events Village will enable visitors to discuss, identify and sign up for a myriad of events taking place across the UK in 2021.

The Events Village will be organised by a team of RaceNation experts who will be on hand to advise visitors on the range of events available from a portfolio of thousands of races taking place in 2021. Runners will be able to scan a QR code on a giant map of the UK and book their space at the event, making the most of exclusive promotions and expert advice. The area will also host key Race Directors who will be on hand to chat to visitors about their events.

RaceNation is a leading event registration, and integrated fundraising platform with an exclusive Event Day App and club membership capability, working with over 2,000 UK events. Hosting the Event Village will mean visitors can book directly onto their favourite races through RaceNation’s platform, making their booking fast, easy and exciting.

Nathalie Davies, Event Director at National Running Show commented: “You asked, and we listened! We are over the moon to be working with RaceNation to bring this feature to life at our flagship Running Show in January. Every year we ask for feedback on our shows and we had a lot of visitors who registered an interest in being able to not only set themselves up with all the kit and tech they needed for the running season ahead, but also to be able to properly plan their running calendar. The Events Village will ensure that this is now easy to do and will hopefully inspire runners to take on new challenges and plan events they can take part in with their running community.”

Will Golder, Director of RaceNation commented, “When we were approached to help solve the need for entrants to be able to sign up to more events, or even find events across the UK that they might not know about, we knew we could help. Our founding ethos back in 2014 was to build technology and support services to provide the best platforms for events and charities of any size. We are delighted to be presenting the Event Village at The National Running shows throughout 2021 by using our platform and partners to host as many events as we can. We hope to help you build an unforgettable calendar of events for your year of competition, while being there to support you every step of the way.”
