About The Running Conference #TRC23



Sunday 10th to Tuesday 12th December 2023 held at Loughborough University

The Running Conference 2023 #TRC23 is an annual three day gathering for members of the Running Industry Alliance (RIA). 

This conference will feature content specifically curated for RIA Members based on RIA’s and Members work which includes focusses on: 

> The Market Place
> Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
> Health and Wellbeing
> Research, Data and Insights
> Sustainability
> Future

The conference aims to provide business and collaboration opportunities, visibility of the industry, businesses, and sector, information and content sharing in a safe RIA Member environment, market and sector insights “first looks”, and various activities and activations for the attendees. The conference will also be a place for industry celebrations and looking ahead.

The theme of the 2023 conference is “AMPLIFICATION” with a focus on connecting, supporting, educating, sharing, amplifying, networking, and growing. This is following the “COLLABORATION” theme of TRC22.

Attendance is for members-only of Running Industry Alliance (RIA), and many RIA Members see the conference as a place to reset, reconnect, and refocus on past learnings and future developments.

The Running Conference #TRC23 is a must-attend event that offers numerous benefits including:

  • Meeting and making new friends with RIA Co-Leads, RIA Team, fellow RIA Members and Alliance Partners from different verticals in a safe business space and friendly environment.
  • Showcasing your business and gaining first look at various valuable insights into the industry in a supportive atmosphere.

  • Celebrating the amazing industry, the people, and the work we all do, in a positive and fun environment. We all share the same love for what we do, which is why we attend The Running Conference.
