In Savannah, Running USA is grateful for the support of Running USA member Savannah Sports Council, which has made a contribution towards the production costs of the event. Anyone interested in supporting the Denver or Washington Accelerator events should reach out to Running USA.

The Accelerator Series events feature compelling speakers and are a great way to get to know the industry’s non-profit trade organization and experience a small taste of the type of content presented at the annual Industry Conference.

There will be insight on industry trends, such as building community and creatively marketing to new participants, digital/data-driven business strategy and much more.

“We can’t wait to connect with running industry professionals from around the country who are able to make it to any of these locations in October,” said Christine Bowen, Chief Operating Officer of Running USA. “We’ve got outstanding programming in progress and look forward to sharing many more details with you very soon.”

The Running USA Accelerator Series has brought timely educational opportunities to cities around the U.S. over the last five years.
