Hey everyone,

Hope you are doing well and good luck to those of you who are entering the spring race season!

It’s been a few months since our very first show and I wanted to say a massive thank you to all of you that attended – we were stunned by the response and delighted by the support and positive feedback that we received – you guys are amazing!

It was obviously our first show and we didn’t get everything right but we have been incredibly busy over the last few months refining the event and developing a show for 2019 that is quite simply amazing! Here are a couple of big bits of news that we thought you might like to hear:

Amazing New Speakers: We are delighted to confirm that we have some amazing and inspirational people joining us for 2019: Paula Radcliffe, Ben Smith, Jo Pavey, Vassos Alexander, Brendan Randall, Susie Chan and many more being announced soon!

Amazing New Brands: We are delighted to announce that we have some amazing new brands already confirmed to exhibit, including: Saucony, Polar, Ronhill, Hilly, Altra, 2XU, and Gu. You can view our current sponsors and exhibitors here.

More retail: We are delighted to announce that we have partnered with one of the biggest running retailers in the UK – Up & Running – giving you more opportunities to buy trainers and other products. We have doubled the size of the exhibition floor to ensure that there are more opportunities for you to try out and buy the very latest products.

Cool New Features: The Running Skills Theatre, the Testing Track, the Sweat Test Zone, the MSK zone and the Podiatry Clinic are all brand new for 2019. Read our full features list here.

Registration is now open! Book before the 30th April and use the code LAUNCH19 to get a free ticket.

As you can see – we’ve been busy!

We hope you like what we’ve done and we look forward to seeing you at the NEC in Birmingham in January. I’m excited already!

Happy running!

Mike
Managing Director
