The National Running Show has announced the latest sponsors to sign up to this innovative new show at Birmingham’s NEC on 20-21 January 2018.
Racecheck, the race review platform for endurance sports events, will be coming on board as a sponsor along with Sports Injury Fix, an online platform that helps athletes find the best treatment in their area. They will be joining a first-class line-up of exhibitors and partners already confirmed for the show, including race organisers, sports retailers, sports brands, nutrition experts, official sporting bodies and communities.
The addition of Racecheck as a sponsor is relevant to any visitors to the show who have taken part – or who want to take part – in an organised event. Racecheck is the go-to platform for sharing reviews on endurance and running events across the globe, which fosters a great sense of community and enables athletes of all abilities to find their perfect race. The site is just as relevant for race organisers, who are able to list their events for free and reach out to a wider audience. Racecheck currently lists thousands of events worldwide with over 12,000 reviews.
Racecheck is also the exclusive sponsor of the Registration Area at The National Running Show, where visitors will be welcomed as they arrive at the show and receive information about this exciting two-day event. It perfectly complements their real-life role at Racecheck in welcoming athletes to a growing global community and helping them to find the right events for them.
Sports Injury Fix promises to be an equally popular sponsor for the show, enabling athletes to find first-rate treatment for injury prevention or recovery. Athletes can use Sports Injury Fix to either post their problem to invite responses from the right type of specialist, or search thousands of comprehensive listings by sport or injury type – enabling them to find the best local specialists that understand their injury and related sport. Runners can visit the Sports Injury Fix stand at The National Running Show to receive free injury advice, guidance and sports massage from its experts, and come away knowing that they have a great online resource for future needs.
Over 16,000 runners have registered for tickets for The National Running Show, which opens its doors in less than two months. It is set to be the event to attend for runners of all abilities and perfect inspiration to kick-start training plans for the year ahead.
The National Running Show will be opened by Dame Kelly Holmes, who will go on to head up an impressive programme of speakers including Jo Pavey, Jenny Tough, Susie Chan, Sean Conway and Russell Smith. It is a brilliant opportunity for runners to hear their running heroes speak about a range of topics including how to run the perfect half marathon, trail versus road running and mental toughness.
Confirmed as partners and sponsors for The National Running Show are some of the UK’s most trusted running brands and communities, including UKRunChat, Run Mummy Run, Running Heroes, The Great Run Company, Race Solutions, Xtra Mile Events, Impact Marathon Series, White Star Running, Ealing Half Marathon, The Running Awards, Oofos, Up & Running, Scimitar, Vibram and Hoka One One, plus Cancer Research UK as Official Charity Partner.
Media partners for the show include Men’s Running, Women’s Running, Sports Insight Magazine and Athletics Weekly.
Mike Seaman, Director of Raccoon Events, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Racecheck and Sports Injury Fix as sponsors for The National Running Show. They will be bringing their knowledge and professionalism to the show for the benefit of athletes, and are both extremely relevant – especially given that most runners will at some point be entering an event or requiring some sort of injury prevention or treatment. We are excited to confirm that we have over 16,000 runners now registered for the show which takes place in just under two months. It promises to be the perfect pick-me-up after the festive season and a great way to kick-start new year training plans! Tickets are available online and we are really looking forward to having everyone gathered under one roof for a fantastic celebration of running.”
