Carl Lewis, Dean Karnazes, Susie Chan, Kelly Roberts, Camille Herron and Lazarus Lake are among the runners confirmed to appear at the inaugural Run Show USA, the consumer running exposition scheduled to take place January 29-30, 2022, at Boston’s Hynes Convention Center.

The Run Show USA was founded by U.K.-based Raccoon Events, the company behind England’s National Running Show, National Outdoor Expo and National Snow Show. This will be the company’s first show in the U.S. market according to CEO Mike Seaman.

“We are delighted to be bringing the hugely successful Run Show to the U.S.,” Seaman said. “Packed full of inspirational talks, educational sessions, the best and latest gear and tech, and access to a host of industry professionals, Run Show USA is open to runners of all abilities. We pride ourselves on being able to bring the running community in the U.K. together, and we look forward to bringing this experience and this community-focused event to Boston.”

The two-day event will include a schedule of seminars, training advice from a wide range of experts, and product information from the major running brands.
 Special features include a Running Skills Theater, the Trail Zone, Strength Training Zone, Gait Analysis, and the Recovery Zone.

Run Show presenter Carl Lewis commented, “Every New Year’s Eve, I make a pact to do something I never thought I’d do. Inspiration is a huge part of dreaming up goals beyond your current comfort zone and an event of this scale will provide an incredible opportunity to hear from people who have been there and done that, who have achieved more than many of us even dare to dream. I look forward to inspiring and encouraging seasoned runners, as well as the next generation of running talent.”
