Preliminary Date Announced for the 2022 Running USA Industry Conference

Dec 23, 2021

The 2022 Running USA Industry Conference will be held in-person in February 2022, with exact dates and location to be announced soon. The conference has a reputation as the leading education and networking event for running event professionals in North America.

Leading event registration platform Race Roster will continue its support of the Running USA Industry Conference.

In November 2019, ASICS confirmed its acquisition of Race Roster. The event registration specialist has since joined ASICS Digital’s portfolio of consumer-focused running platforms.

Race Roster was the title sponsor of Running USA’s 2020 industry event in Las Vegas, Nevada, which hosted more than 700 attendees. While the 2021 conference was not held due to the coronavirus pandemic, Race Roster has continued to support Running USA’s educational efforts, such as the November 2020 Timer Symposium, which delivered industry content virtually.

“We are so appreciative of Race Roster’s continued commitment to the endurance industry and to our educational programming at the Running USA Industry Conference,” said Dawna Stone, CEO of Running USA.

“Just as events are excited to be running in-person again this summer and fall, we look forward to welcoming everyone back real time at our 2022 event.”

Christine Bowen, Vice President of Programming, Partnerships and Operations at Running USA, added “Race Roster has been a supportive and collaborative partner of Running USA for over six years now.

“Their efforts during the pandemic to help events pivot and survive are a great example of their dedication to our industry. We are thrilled they’ll be our conference title sponsor for the next two years.”

Alex Vander Hoeven, CEO of Race Roster and GM of ASICS Running Apps, said “The Running USA Industry Conference is my favourite annual conference, and I can’t wait for it to return in 2022.

“I think we all sorrily missed seeing our industry friends and partners in 2021. We’re entering an entirely new chapter in the endurance space, and I’m truly excited for the innovative solutions and experiences that will be introduced in the coming years.”
