We are also be fortunate to have our charity partners present to address any questions about their causes and inviting you to participate in their outreach efforts.

The best thing about the expo is that it is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

We have partnered with Virtual Race Bags to produce a ‘virtual goody bag’ in an effort to go green and provide additional benefits to our participants. All participants of this year’s event will receive an invitation email to our Virtual Goody Bag prior to the event. Each goody bag will include an array of valuable information including exclusive offers, coupons and sponsor messages.



The Expo is the only place you can pick-up your registration packet. Bring a picture ID. If the races are not filled to capacity, there will be a registration booth at the expo. There will not be race day registration or race day packet pick-up.

There will not be race-day pick-up available. Participants must present a government issued ID to pick up race packet. Proxy Packet Pick-up (picking up a packet for someone else) the process is as follows: a photo copy of that participant’s photo ID is required. This copy will be retained until the completion of the event weekend as proof of packet distribution. There are no exceptions to this rule.
