This November 15-18, the IRRA (Independent Running Retailers Association) will hold its annual The Running Event. This conference, Expo and 5k run help support the efforts of the IRRA. The IRRA promotes the interests of independently owned and operated specialty running stores across the country. KT Tape will be helping sponsor the Indie 5K being held on November 17th at 6:30 am. Of course we will be at the race with tape in hand offering free tapings, demos and samples. KT Tape will also have a booth at the retail expo starting later that day where we will be answering all the questions of your favorite local running stores. Independent specialty running stores make up a big part of the running retail world and offer runners a more intimate and expert shopping experience. Indie shops provide runners with a wealth of information on shoe fit, running gear and how to be a member of the running community. For more information on the IRRA visit their website here.
