There also will be practical advice and training tips from a wide range of experts in the Running Skills Theatre, providing new and experienced runners with information and advice to get started or advance their running ability.

 “We have ambitious plans for Raccoon Events,” said Mike Seaman, CEO at Raccoon Events

The Run Show USA is the first step on an exciting journey, and we look forward (to taking) this award-winning brand to runners in Boston.”

The two-year-old U.K.-based show has won a slew of awards, including "Best Consumer Show Launch Winner " - AEO Awards; "Best Launch Winner" - EN Indy Awards; and "Best Show Winner" - EN Indy Awards 2019.
