It has been confirmed that Eventbrite will be the official registration partner for the 2017 Running Awards. Following feedback from last year’s attendees the awards ceremony has been moved forward one day to Thursday 20 April 2017 at indigo at the O2 in London, to allow an extra day between the awards and the Virgin Money London Marathon.
The Running Awards Founding Partner, Paul Corrick, said “Eventbrite provided the registration platform for all of last year’s attendees and the process was so smooth and intuitive to use it was a natural choice to work with Eventbrite again. Not only are they the world’s largest registration and event technology platform but they are a great company to work with.”
“Running is one of the oldest, most primal and rewarding experiences out there”, said Marino Fresch, ultrarunner and Marketing Director at Eventbrite in the UK and Ireland. “As a company that helps race organisers focus on the race experience rather than registration admin, we are proud to once again partner with The Running Awards for 2017.”
The Running Awards is positioned as ‘the only completely independent annual awards ceremony celebrating the best of running and its culture’, with runners and consumers nominating and voting free for their favourite products, brands, publications, sports retailers, charities and events. The shortlists for the 2017 Running Awards will be collated in December, with the top 12 in each category announced and the seconnd stage of voting then opening.
Over 500 A-list industry figures and key running press and fitness bloggers will attend the event next April. Dinner event tickets will go on sale later this year, but nominations and voting are now open for the 2017 Running Awards.
