What previous attendees are saying…

“We’re really very honored and excited that the Accelerator Series came to Cincinnati…It was really a good experience. We brought about five members of our staff… I feel they had a home run today! It really was time well spent on a beautiful Friday afternoon. Two of the staff members at my table were very very impressed.”

Iris Simpson Bush, Executive director, Flying Pig Marathon

“Not only do we have the opportunity to network with our peers in the industry, but learn more about marketing trends and the technology that is available in the industry. All of today’s speakers were wonderful and I just really had a great experience. I would recommend it for anybody looking for more opportunity to get more tools in the industry.”

Shanna Ward, Kentucky Derby Festival Mini Marathon

“The Running USA Accelerator speakers in Phoenix were great – they shared so much industry insight! I only wished the event had been a full day so we could have learned that much more”

Caleb Bacon, Vice President of Branding and Communications, Cool Events

“The topics at this Accelerator Series were right on point. I think social media and digital presence will continue to be a needed conversation.”

Shirelle LaTortue, Sponsorship Coordinator for the Marine Corps Marathon
