ORLANDO  (June 15, 2021) – Just as runners and race producers are excited to be getting back to live events, the Running USA team is thrilled to be back on track for a 2022 in-person industry conference at Disney’s Coronado Springs resort in Orlando.

Planning is underway for the Feb. 20-22 event, which will again be presented by Race Roster. Attendee registration opened in early June.

“The leading industry conference will be raising the bar for our 2022 event,” said Dawna Stone, CEO of Running USA. “We are planning a programming lineup that focuses on the bright future for the running industry and we invite our members and industry colleagues to lend us their expertise.”

The Running USA Conference Planning Committee works year-round to put together a wide variety of content that is relevant and engaging for attendees across the industry, including event directors, product vendors, technology companies, marketing experts, support personnel and more.

“It is our goal to select engaging and knowledgeable presenters and dynamic industry experts,” said Christine Bowen, vice president of programming, partnerships and operations at Running USA. “As in past years, presentation opportunities are purely educational and not considered as part of sponsorship opportunities. We are fully focused on educational programming for this event.”

Through August 31, those interested in presenting at the 2022 conference can submit an application with their suggested topic or presentation focus.
