The Running Event in Austin, Texas is the premier conference and trade show for running. It boasts over 250 exhibitors, with both major footwear brands and innovative newcomers alike making appearances.
So of course Zwift had to swing by.
We hit the expo floor last week giving demos and introducing brands to our robust online community. During the show, we even showed off endurance runner Calum Neff as he clocked an impressive 13.5 miles on Zwift.
In addition to the expo, we partnered with BibRave to host a special 5K group run on Zwift featuring 20 BibRave Pros. We brought two Woodway treadmills into the Hilton in Austin and set up Zwift run stations. Four BibRave runners in the room took to Watopia’s run path, joining 50 of their teammates from across the country for a 5k run. The rest of the BibRave crew in the room was there supporting their teammates, cheering and learning about Zwift.
Zwift and BibRave’s partnership helped connect 50 BibRave pros from all across the country, bringing them together in person for the first time for the first ever BibRave group run.

“How can you beat a virtual run with your friends from the comfort of your treadmill!” @beardontherun
