The organisers of the National Running Show Birmingham in the UK have announced further sponsors and exhibitors for the event, which takes place on 25-26 January 2020 at Birmingham’s NEC.
Joining the third edition of the National Running Show are Sports Injury Fix, Run 3D, YAMAtune, Daisy and Co, Funky Pants, Kaneka Ubiquinol, Rawvelo, Oatopia, Begach Running Club, Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series and PostureFit.
Sports Injury Fix returns as sponsor of The Treament Room at next year’s show, and will once again have a stand offering advice, guidance, treatment and sports massage from a qualified team of therapists.
Run3D will be returning as a sponsor of 3D Gait Analysis to help show visitors understand exactly how they are running. 3D Gait Analysis will be pre-bookable from the autumn/fall so that visitors can secure their slot at the two-day show.
Japanese sock manufacturer YAMAtune will be bringing its range of performance running socks to The National Running Show, following its launch in UK and Europe.
The opportunity for new running gear extends to sportswear brand Daisy & Co London which designs luxury athletic wear for females, from leggings and playsuits to bras and vests. Funky Pants UK will also be exhibiting its eye-catching and ‘ridiculously comfy’ active sportswear for outdoor pursuits.
Kaneka Ubiquinol returns to the National Running Show for its second year, to demonstrate how its active form of CoQ10 provides energy to runners’ cells and assists with exercise recovery. Rawvelo, meanwhile, will attend the show with its range of organic, vegan sports nutrition products for endurance athletes.
Family-run mobile catering business Oatopia is ‘guaranteed to be a hit with visitors looking to re-fuel’, with its delicious porridge, range of artisan flapjacks and coffee.
Begach Running Club from Bulgaria will appeal to runners looking for some exciting new terrain and challenges, with events including a festival weekend and triathlon. There is even more to choose from with Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, whose idea of making running fun has resulted in 28 destination events across the world. The entertainment-themed marathons and half marathons range from Lima to Liverpool and Dublin to Denver.
The final new exhibitor is PostureFit, whose services include running and gait biomechanical analysis. This is seen as a valuable resource for runners of all standards wanting to improve their performance through alignment, balance and efficiency.
The National Running Show is the UK’s biggest independent running show, offering runners a unique opportunity to try out and purchase the latest products and limited editions from big, well-known brands through to smaller brands not found anywhere else. The show expects more than 55,000 visitor ticket registrations for 2020, all of whom will be able to discover the latest kit, tech, nutrition and races from over 250 exhibitors, learn from inspiring speakers and improve their running technique thanks to the hands-on feature areas.
Mike Seaman, Director of Raccoon Events, said “We are excited to welcome more sponsors and exhibitors and it is with absolute pleasure that we announce this latest list of names. We are committed to providing an extensive choice for everyone visiting the show, and the 2020 event will offer the greatest number of retail opportunities yet.
“From the latest running apparel through to events, nutrition, sports health and performance, we have something for everyone. The National Running Show Birmingham is deliberately timed so that runners can come and look round, try out products and make their decisions ahead of race season. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the NEC in January.”
The third edition of The National Running Show Birmingham takes place on 25-26 January 2020. The National Running Show London takes place on 13-14 June 2020. Tickets are currently free for both shows.
