With a new year comes new membership benefits at Running USA. Effective from 1 January 2016, the trade organization for the sport of running will roll out improved membership levels, providing members ‘a significant expansion of overall value, along with greater flexibility in the membership renewal process.’
Membership of the trade organization in 2016 is based on either Standard Membership (US$349), Contributing Member (US$1,500) or Foundation Member (US$3,500). Benefits scale up through each membership band – with members benefiting from discounted conference entry and press release distribution, through to social media sharing by Running USA, digital copies of surveys and featured stories on the Running USA website.
