Welcome at the Running.EXPO


We are very happy to welcome you at our expo, the Running.EXPO, on September 29 and 30 2017 as a visitor or exhibitor in LANXESS arena.


Thousands of sports enthusiasts will start an extensive shopping marathon. Besides running shoes and fitting clothes you will find information about topics like nutrition, health, sports medicine and active holidays. This is what the 2017 Running.EXPO stands for. The fair will present more than 100 manufacturers, dealers, travel agencies and marathon organisers as well as service providers from the field of running. The locally-known “Henkelmännchen” will become a magnet for running freaks for two days.
