ABSTRACT
The article informs that the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association "2008 State of the Industry Survey" lists running as number four on the list of "Hottest Sports for Sales Growth in 2008" behind yoga/pilates, fitness walking and lacrosse. Although women represent significant sales opportunities for performance running footwear and apparel brands, a slowing rate of growth means a more competitive marketplace.
