The Running Boom Continues - 50 million+ Regular Runners in the USA

Running USA published their annual State of the Sport on running, which is always a fascinating read. The "second boom" of running continued through 2011, with 9% growth in frequent runners, 7.8% growth in trail runners, 16% growth in half marathons, more big marathons than ever, and an impressive showing by women and charity-based runners.

Check it out - definitely a fun read, and good sign of growing activity in the US.
