Last week we announced that the National Camping Show was changing its show dates. Since the UK lockdown announcement, the National Running Show has also moved its dates further into the summer – from June to July.

The National Running Show South is taking place at Farnborough International on 17 – 18 July. The show is a home for all runners, no matter how far or fast you go. The event brings together inspirational speakers, the latest kit, cutting-edge technology, expert coaches, the best races and a host of tasty nutrition products all under one roof. It is one of the biggest community meet-ups of the year, featuring a Trail Running Zone and an All Terrain Running Zone.

Mike Seaman, CEO of parent company Racoon Events, says, “I simply cannot wait to get back to a live event and am so excited that we can finally stage a National Running Show again! We have continuously said that we will only run shows when it is safe to do so and with hugs and high 5s all round! That still holds true. 

"The government has a stated aim for restrictions to end from 21 June which is amazing! Our new dates are on the 17-18 July, which also gives us a 4-week cushion. I believe that face-to-face human contact is crucial for us all and I believe that the National Running Show is an important event for the running community that we the organisers have a duty to deliver.”
