Hundreds of running enthusiasts raced through Zilker Park rather quickly Wednesday morning for the Indie 5k. The race is part of the Running Event which is a trade show that comes to Austin once a year showcasing the latest and greatest gadgets and gear for runners.
The expo is closed to the public and gives retailers a chance to check out what they might want to put on store shelves in 2013.
Running Insight Editor Mark Sullivan says some of the trends this year include lightweight shoes, safety gear including light up hats and gloves and performance outerwear.
FOX 7's Ann Wyatt Little caught up with Mark Sullivan in Zilker Park.
