January 2023 Update from our Executive Director

| Terry Schalow | News & Updates
One year ago in the RIA Pulse, I had the pleasure of congratulating the run specialty channel for what was without a doubt the greatest year of growth in the history of the run specialty channel. 

The RIA’s sole purpose is to drive the running industry forward. We do this by helping members maintain healthy, profitable businesses through financial benefits, innovative commerce tools, advocacy, strategic partnerships, and peer support.

This blog provides the latest in news and updates for the specialty run channel.
