The new Run Show USA is heading to Chicago this June following an incredibly successful series of events in the UK. The expo for runners – scheduled for June 4-5, 2022, at DES Convention Center in Rosemont, IL – promises to give runners inspiration and expert advice while also bringing the community together.

Understanding personalized performance data like pace, recovery time, lactate threshold, VO2 max and cadence can encourage runners to make improvements to their training. To help runners better understand their tech, Garmin® will join Run Show Chicago to exhibit its running smartwatches, including the Forerunner® lineup, as well as a variety of accessories and training tools.

“We’re thrilled that Garmin is attending the Run Show in Chicago to help everyday runners understand how to benefit from their running watch and use it as part of their training regime,” says event director Craig Hanratty, who has recently completed the LA Marathon.

“We are excited to attend Run Show Chicago, as it provides us with a great opportunity to meet with runners of all levels,” said Susan Lyman, Garmin vice president of global consumer marketing. “We look forward to showing runners how they can maximize their performance with the help of our feature-rich Garmin smartwatches, accessories and training tools.”

With an awesome speaker line-up including Carl Lewis, Dean Karnazes, Sally McRae, The Mirnavator, Zachery Friedley and many others, the show will include a packed schedule of inspirational and educational talks; training tips from a wide range of experts; interactive features and product booths featuring leading running brands such as Asics, Altra, Hoka One One, Diadora and Runderwear.
