NORWALK, Conn. (January 16, 2020) – Reed Exhibitions announced today the launch of EnduranceCon—a two-day festival that celebrates the passion and lifestyle of the endurance sports community. The event will take place June 27-28, 2020 at the Long Beach Convention Center in California, and is presented in collaboration with Spartan, the world’s largest obstacle course race and endurance brand.

Athletes and enthusiasts at all levels of running, cycling, triathlon, obstacle course racing, and other sports are invited to gather at EnduranceCon to experience:

  • New, exclusive gear from leading brands, including footwear, apparel, equipment, tech, and nutrition
  • Motivational and educational talks by celebrity endurance athletes on topics from injury prevention to mental endurance
  • Interactive experiences like sample races, skills clinics, and contests
  • Socialization and celebration with fellow enthusiasts over food, drinks, film, art, and music

In tandem with the official date announcement, Reed Exhibitions named its current lineup of industry sponsors and supporters, which will help promote EnduranceCon and participate in the event via competitions, talks, podcasts, onsite activations, and a race directors summit. Official collaborators to date include Road Runner Sports (official retailer), OOFOS, Conqur Endurance Group (Los Angeles Marathon), Babbitville Radio, USA Cycling, USA Triathlon, and Spartan.

Spartan will host a short obstacle course race at EnduranceCon, and invites first-timers as well as its ever-growing community of passionate competitors to participate. In addition, Spartan Founder and CEO Joe De Sena will lead the keynote talk on Sunday, June 28.

“Spartan’s global community knows the true meaning of endurance and what it’s like to push beyond what they ever thought possible, which is why working with Reed on EnduranceCon, a unique expo designed to celebrate this superior human quality is a natural fit,” said De Sena. “We’re thrilled to collaborate and build the event into a catalyst for transformation and one of the world’s leading destinations for anyone interested in pushing their boundaries.”
