The IAAF hosted a convention on global running in Lanzou, China, on May 31-June 2. Over 600 delegates went to the event and the IAAF released a study on running research, plus some fine discussions. We hope to get the transcripts to those events, and will post. We will post the research from the RunRepeat.com, in a separate post.

RunBlogRun's Larry Eder was denied entry into China by the Chicago Chinese Visa office for the event, due to his status as a credentialed Journalist in Beijing in 2008 and 2015. Story will be posted on that lovely experience soon.
