Running show attendees will have access to the latest kit, technology, nutrition and advice from over 250 exhibitors. This partnership acknowledges the importance of fundraising within the running industry and is suitable for runners of all ages and stages, from novice to expert.

By partnering with The National Running Show, Children with Cancer UK hope to inspire visitors at the show to put their running efforts towards raising funds for vital specialist childhood cancer research. Running for charity is also a great incentive for runners, giving them added motivation as they train for an event, the support of the running community and an extra boost to cross the finish line on race day.

Helping runners to achieve their goals will be a superb range of interactive areas at the 2020 show. These include The Ultra Zone, Obstacle Course Race, The Trail Zone, 3D Gait Analysis, Steve Cram’s Training Camp, Nutrition Advice Zone, Sweat Test Zone, Treadmill Challenge, Ask the Experts, All Terrain Running Zone and The Treatment Room.

Visitors will also be treated to a first-class speaker programme where they can listen to running greats, including Sally Gunnell, Linford Christie, Dean Karnazes, Kriss Akabusi, Jo Pavey, Steve Cram, Susannah Gill, Jordan Wylie, Lazarus Lake, Camille Herron, Nicky Spinks, Mimi Anderson and Anna McNuff.

Children with Cancer UK CEO Mark Brider said:

We are delighted to be partnering with The National Running Show in 2020. We hope to inspire even more supporters to pick up their running shoes and take on sporting events across the country in aid of Children with Cancer UK.

This partnership will help us raise awareness and funds for vital lifesaving childhood cancer research and support the 12 families in the UK each day who are given the devastating news that their child has cancer. We won’t stop until every child survives.

Mike Seaman, CEO of Raccoon Events, commented:

We are thrilled to partner with Children with Cancer UK at The National Running Show Birmingham. Children with Cancer UK carries out significant work in improving survival rates of children with cancer, supporting families affected and funding groundbreaking research to help children with cancer. It is a privilege to help raise awareness for the charity and to encourage runners to lace up and raise money for such a worthy cause.

Many thousands of runners will walk through the doors of The National Running Show in January and we hope that many will be inspired to achieve their new year goals whilst supporting Children with Cancer UK. We cannot wait to welcome everyone to the show.

Children with Cancer UK is working on some exciting plans for The National Running Show which will be shared soon. For now, tickets are available to purchase at £10 via nationalrunningshow.reg.buzz.
