Billed as ‘the largest exhibition dedicated to a sporting discipline in France’, Le Salon du Running will open its doors this year from Thursday 31 March at 15:00 CET at the Parc des Expositions exhibition centre at Porte de Versailles in Paris.
Over two and a half days, 220 exhibitors will showcase some of the latest innovations from the world of running on display for an expected 90,000 visitors. The expo is organized by A.S.O., in conjunction with the Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris, which this year takes place on 3 April 2016.
Event organizers, distributors specializing in nutrition or coaching, running media and tourism operators will be out in force at Le Salon du Running, as will the industry’s leading apparel companies. A running track will allow thousands of runners to ‘try out the latest shoes in ideal conditions.’
New for 2016
The 2016 edition of Le Salon du Running will focus on a three-prong health and coaching theme that emcompasses: health, female runners and relaxation.
As in the past, Le Salon du Running will offer up activities for all runners, including an evening ‘running affair’ on Thursday 31 March. Here, the ‘exceptional evening will see runners and visitors come together in a festive and friendly atmosphere just until 10pm.’ On the programme will be: retro-gaming, duel races, a playlist bar, photo call running, DJs, a concert and more.
Visitors of all levels can also take part in training sessions: warm-up, physical conditioning, stretching, interval training and yoga with specialized athletes and coaches.
