The Health and Fitness Expo has something for everyone. You'll be able to shop for discounted running shoes, apparel and gear - and also meet famous running legends, attend workshops and pick up all of your race day materials.
We're expecting more 200 vendors to participate in this year's Expo, and you'll have a chance to purchase their products at amazing discounts.
All participants must attend the Health and Fitness Expo in order to pick up their bib, race bag and t-shirt. Friends, family and the general public are welcome to attend. The Expo is free of charge and parking at the I-X Center is also free to everyone.
Health & Fitness Expo
The Health & Fitness Expo is the kickoff to marathon weekend in Cleveland. The Expo is held over two days, Friday and Saturday, and all race participants are required to attend in order to pick up their race packets, t-shirts and race bibs. We find that not only do runners attend, they also bring their friends and family and stay to shop and browse. In addition, we distribute 20,000 Runners’ Agendas that includes all of our sponsor information.
Vendors are able to sell, sample, raffle and coupon to more than 45,000 visitors during the Expo.
With the average runner bringing another 2.45 persons along with them to the Health & Fitness Expo - your potential reach is outstanding. In 2013, more than 60,000 people browsed the Expo looking for products to purchase.
