In late 2018, Running Awards & Apparel announced a merger with Racetrackers Enterprises, Inc. formerly of Spencer, Indiana. After focusing on the awards and medals side of the running industry, this merger opened the doors for Running Awards & Apparel to supply Racetrackers customized hats and shirts to running apparel outlets for resale to customers and running club members.

Promising Growth and a Bright Future

Running Awards & Apparel general manager, Kristen Gehrig, has been happy with the volume of sales of the top Racetrackers item, the 6500A Run Dri Cap, over the first 3 quarters of 2019 and says forecasts look promising for the final few months of the year. She expects continued growth in 2020.

Racetrackers Hats for Everyone

Gehrig is also excited to be offering this product to all The Running Event attendees as goody-bag swag, supplying 900 customized caps to cover this gift initiative. The event attendees will primarily be the owners and buying managers of running stores from across the United States, which is the target market for Racetrackers wholesale priced products. The Running Event is the largest gathering of U.S. retail operators who specialize in running products and attracts thousands of attendees each year.

Running Events or Running Stores – Commitment Remains the Same

Running Awards & Apparel is committed to offering the same level of service and high-quality products customers have always ordered, whether for small town events, large commercial races or major retail operations. Customers interested in customized race products outside of the upcoming Austin event, can find Racetrackers hats and gear along with a large selection of medals, awards and other items, on the Running Awards & Apparel website at
