Get Event Fit delivers integrated training programmes to help participants achieve their goals when training for a running event or a virtual challenge such as Virtuathon. The integrated training programmes weave together related content from multiple sources to include fitness, nutrition, mindset and more, and are delivered via the excellent Get Event Fit app to educate and motivate every day throughout the training journey. For beginner runners especially, Get Event Fit is a fantastic training partner.

All of this makes Get Event Fit a perfect sponsor for The National Running Show, which is set to the be the event to attend for runners of all abilities and interests. With one month to go, over 20,000 runners have registered for tickets for this innovative new expo that will gather race organisers, sports retailers, sports brands, nutrition experts, official sporting bodies and communities together under one roof like never before.

The Run Café sponsored by Get Event Fit promises to be a popular spot for visitors to relax at the show, as well as an ideal central point for partners and media to arrange meetings and Tweetups.

In addition to sponsoring The Run Café, The National Running Show is the perfect platform for Get Event Fit to launch Virtuathon is a series of virtual running, cycling and triathlon challenge events which aim to encourage people across the country to get active. The Get Event Fit app takes them through an integrated training programme and encourages them to learn positive daily habits that will last long after the initial challenge is complete. The challenges can be completed at any location, inside or out, individually or with friends, and all finishers are rewarded with a Virtuathon medal.

Introducing Virtuathon to the running community in the new year is perfect timing as it offers fantastic motivation to kick-start 2018. Indeed, The National Running Show has been deliberately timed to inspire runners and help them make their race, training, brand and nutrition choices for the year ahead.
