The Running Event has partnered with Washington, DC-based retailer Pacers Running to present the first annual For Every Run Film Festival. The festival will take place December 1 at The Running Event in Austin, TX.

The For Every Run Film Festival will recognize the best stories from the world of running, showcasing multiple categories for films as well as best brand campaign, photo, podcast, and written work. Category winners—vetted by a committee of industry leaders—will be celebrated during the film festival.

“The For Every Run Film Festival will highlight the unique perspectives and poignant stories that are so important to the growth of running as an industry, sport, and community,” said Christina Henderson, Event Director, The Running Event. “We’re thrilled to partner with Pacers Running and bring this special experience to The Running Event not only in 2022, but for years to come.”

From November 30 through December 1, attendees will be able to preview and explore festival content at the Pacers Running booth in the #TRE22 exhibit hall. The For Every Run Film Festival will begin at 5:30 PM CT on December 1 and be open to event attendees.

“The For Every Run Film Festival was born from a desire to highlight amazing stories from the world of running,” said Kathy Dalby, CEO, Pacers Running. “There are thousands of beautiful and compelling films, photos, writings, and podcasts about running, and the festival will celebrate the storytellers bringing that art to light. We are proud to work with The Running Event to bring this incredibly exciting project to the industry, and we encourage all run creators—regardless of budget, size, or affiliation—to submit their work.”
