Na sajtu RunSignup pokušali su da sastave najvećih 100 trka koje su bile merene u 2019. godini.

Ovakvu listu prave već nekoliko godina (evo analize iz 2018. godine). U tom pokušaju možda su propustili neke trke ili možda brojevi nisu baš tačni jer je ovo ručni proces.

Takođe, pogledajte njihov izveštaj o trendovima trka za dubinski prikaz podataka sa više hiljada trka i sa milionima učesnika. Postoji i dvogodišnja analiza tržišta registracija učesnika.

Sve u svemu, 2019. je bila dobra godina sa skromnim rastom od 1 – 2,3% u zavisnosti od toga kako se računa. Postojala je trka sa samo jednim izdanjem – “Tunnel to Viaduct 8K” sa 25.000 učesnika – računajući ovo daje 2,3%. Ako se ova trka ne računa, i zameni sa trkom sa 101. mesta na listi, rezultat se smanjuje na 1,4%.

Ukupno 1.870.000 učesnika u Top 100 predstavlja oko 6-10% od ukupnog broja učesnika u svim trkama, u zavisnosti u koju procenu tržišta verujete.

Konsolidacija

Iako je došlo do konsolidacije industrije tokom poslednjih nekoliko godina, pri čemu je WTC kupio Rock & Roll, a Gannet / New Media / Gatehouse / Rugged preuzeo Hot Chocolate, RamRacing, Enmotive, imATHLETE, još uvek je prilično ograničen obim posla.

U nastavku su predstavljena TOP 8 vlasnika trka. Nijedan od njih nije dostigao čak ni 1% tržišnog udela u SAD-u, što dokazuje da je to teško dostići.

WTC je porastao na 12 Rock & Roll trka za nešto više od 10% dodavanjem trka od 5K svojim događajima. Gannett – Hot Chocolate porasli su za 13%.

Zaključak

Tržište Sjedinjnih Američkih Država u trčanju je već zrelo. U ovoj listi nema trka iz Evrope, Indije i rastućeg tržišta na istoku, posebno u Kini. Da ima i jedna Ljubljana bi se našla na njoj.

Ono što je zanimljivo jeste za svaku od ovih trka koji su skočile ili izrazito pale, pronaći razlog zbog čega se to desilo i na tim lekcijama učiti i postavljati svoju strategiju razvoja ili kontrole rizika.
