Running USA Industry Conference - Race Camp

After a successful Race Camp at the 2016 Running USA Industry Conference, we've brought back our popular "un-conference," once again giving attendees the power to select which topics and sessions you value most. Our lineup is set and you have the opportunity to pick the three topics you most want to learn about and discuss.


Different from last year (because of the feedback you provided), instead of having three different sessions under each topic, we will only have one session that rotates three times under each of the eight topics. This allows attendees the flexibility to jump to three different topics instead of simply being "stuck" with one.


How It Works at the Conference

Conference attendees will pick one session to attend per time slot. Attendees should come prepared with questions to ask and engage with their peers. Sessions are designed to be collaborative and are not meant to be presentations, meaning attendees will need to actively participate. Race Camp is a tool to help you grow your business and the sport.
