PORTLAND, Maine (December 14, 2020) – Running Insight, the leading industry news source for businesses in the sport of running, announced today the 2021 dates and format for the second Market Week, a free event that connects run specialty retailers with industry experts and leading brands. It will take place virtually from January 26-28, 2021 and feature exclusive content, productive meetings, and peer learning.

“Our decision to launch Market Week this year was based on numerous conversations with retailers and brands about the importance of industry connection and peer learning,” said Christina Henderson, Executive Director, Running Insight. “As recently as our successful Footwear Week event earlier this December, we’ve witnessed firsthand the incredible personal and business value of connecting the running industry during these challenging times. We are thrilled to offer a platform for run specialty retailers, thought leaders, and brands to learn, connect, and celebrate early in the new year.”

Market Week will feature forward-looking insights presented by industry experts Karnan & Associates and offer peer learning opportunities in dynamic networking roundtables. Like Running Insight’s prior virtual events, it also offers retailers one-on-one assistance scheduling meetings with preferred brands across product categories that include apparel, footwear, hosiery, technology, nutrition, and recovery. Early sponsors include Timex, Hyperice, and CEP Compression. Sponsorship slots are limited; for more information, please contact Christina Henderson at [email protected].

Interested retailers are encouraged to register for Market Week online.

In addition to the educational and networking opportunities at Market Week, the event will celebrate the Best Running Stores of 2020 in a virtual awards ceremony held on January 27, 2021. Open to all industry professionals (including retailers, brands, and media), the event will recognize the 60 winning stores of 2020—and unveil the store of the year. Market Week attendees can register for the awards ceremony through the easy opt-in option during registration or directly online here. Market Week attendance is not required to attend the Best Running Stores of 2020.
