ORLANDO – Running USA is excited to announce additional supporters and details of its private cheer zone near the finish line of the U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Marathon in downtown Orlando on Saturday, Feb. 3.

The organization is partnering with the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) to welcome all attendees of the 2024 Industry Conference (it’s not too late to sign up!) to watch the 10 a.m. race with friends and colleagues, enjoy coffee, breakfast and lunch from local food trucks courtesy of haku. Spectators will also have access to private, clean restroom facilities. Runners will pass by the cheer zone four times during the race.

In addition to partnering with RRCA, Running USA is grateful for the support of haku and the Philadelphia Marathon, which have come on board as sponsors of the cheer zone. Thank you for making this experience possible for our guests as they enjoy the exciting competition to make the U.S. Olympic Marathon team! Running USA also thanks the organizers of the Trials: The City of Orlando, Orange County, The Greater Orlando Sports Commission, Track Shack, Visit Orlando and USA Track & Field.

Running USA conference attendees will simply need to present their conference badge and/or provided wristband (available at the Industry Conference Jan. 31-Feb. 2) to gain access to the cheer zone. Any questions about the event can be emailed to Running USA at conference@runningusa.org. The exact cheer zone location as well as a detailed “know-before-you-go” document will be distributed via attendee emails during the Orlando conference. We look forward to seeing you in Orlando.
