The Run Show USA Partners with RaceRaves to Bring Events Village Concept to Life

November 2, 2021

Interactive experience offers race organizers a dedicated space to showcase their events

/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ The Run Show USA, a newly launched expo for running enthusiasts, today announced a partnership with RaceRaves, the leading online race finder and reviews community for runners of all levels, to develop an Events Village as a key feature of each 2022 Run Show USA event (Jan 29-30 in Boston, Jun 4-5 in Chicago and Sep 24-25 in Los Angeles). The Events Village offers race directors nationwide a novel opportunity to promote their events to thousands of passionate runners who are looking for new racing challenges in 2022 and beyond.

Nathalie Davies, Event Director of The Run Show USA said: “We are excited to partner with RaceRaves to host our Events Village. Their knowledge of the race events community enables us to create an informative space that connects runners directly to race representatives and valuable resources to help them discover fun and challenging events from local 5Ks to bucket-list destination races.”

Event organizers can take part in the Events Village either in person by securing one of a limited number of subsidized pods or virtually by sharing race materials that convey the essence of their event.

We’re thrilled to partner with The Run Show USA to bring our expertise & insights to this dynamic new experience that helps runners find their next favorite race – or personal best, or Boston Qualifier – plus a hidden gem or two along the way,” said RaceRaves co-founder and Chief Racing Officer Mike Sohaskey. “The Events Village is an attractive and affordable opportunity for race organizers nationwide to share what makes their events special with a receptive audience of runners eager to learn more.

Showcasing an all-star lineup of speakers along with the latest gear, cutting-edge technology, expert coaches, and the best races from around the country, The Run Show USA will deliver a first-class experience to inspire, inform and educate runners as they prepare for the racing season. Notably, each show is not attached to a specific event, eliminating the potential distraction of pre-race nerves and resulting in a more relaxed environment to browse, learn and shop.
