The latest shoes, running gear, and people who know about them will be showcased this Thursday and Friday at the DECC.

This two-day event is free and is something that everyone can visit. Whether you are starting out and have questions about shoes or other running gear, or you are a seasoned pro and wait to pick up your brand from the experts. There will be nearly 100 exhibitors that the public can take advantage of. The Michelina’s All-You-Can-Eat Spaghetti Dinner will be taking place Friday and it makes the perfect opportunity to take advantage of both events on that day.

The official times of the event are from Thursday, June 20, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Friday, June 21, from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Also, participants registered for the 43rd Annual Grandma’s Marathon, the 29th Annual Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon, and the 26th Annual William A. Irvin 5K may pick up their race packets at the event. Packet pick-up continues until 11:00 p.m. Friday in Paulucci Hall.

 Advantage Emblem, the official merchandiser of Grandma’s Marathon, will be at the Expo with official 2019 Grandma’s Marathon t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and other merchandise. So, if you are looking to update your Grandma's gear for this year, this is a great opportunity to do so.
