powThe National Running Show are delighted to announce that the popular POW! Virtual Running team are going to be exhibiting at our inaugural Show in January 2018!

POW! are an online virtual events organisation based in South Wales, specialising in organising and promoting “virtual” runs which attract a huge gathering of runners from across the country. For an entry fee, runners can “enter” a race, download a number, and run the specified distance at a time or venue of their choice. After submitting proof of the run, the participants are sent one of a unique collection of retro, geeky, or pop culture medals!

There is an added bonus to running a POW! race – 20% of the entry fee gets donated to a charity chosen for that particular event, meaning runners get fit, donate to charity, and get a wonderfully-unique medal each time!

The National Running Show said:

“We’re very excited that POW! Virtual Running are going to be exhibiting at our event in The NEC in 2018! Their theme, their website, and their medals are absolutely wonderful! They’re a refreshing alternative vibe in the running world, and the team behind the organisation do a wonderful job of promoting their races and donating to charity. We’re really looking forward to having this unique group at our show!”

The National Running Show is the UK’s newest and most exciting running event, attracting thousands of runners looking to find the kit, advice and support needed to achieve their running goals. It is an event designed for runners and by runners but crucially it takes place at the start of the calendar year when most runners start training plans and deciding their race calendar. Visitors to the show will be able to hear inspirational talks from running experts and get free advice on nutrition, training and equipment. They can also see the latest products launches, get free trainer fitting and enter a range of exciting competitions.

The National Running Show is organised by Raccoon Events and takes place at the NEC on 20-21 January 2018. For more information, please contact [email protected] or call Madeleine on 0203 770 9303.
