To kick off the 2017 Philadelphia Marathon, the Health & Fitness Expo takes over downtown Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Convention Center for two days during Race Weekend. With vendors showcasing the newest running apparel, shoes and accessories, distributing product samples, and offering tips on health and fitness, the Expo is a valuable event for all runners, whether seasoned and serious or just starting out.
All race participants are required to stop by the Expo to pick up their race packets, which include a bib, timing tag, t-shirt and bag.
The Expo, which is free and open to the public, also offers much more than the basics. This is the place to purchase official 2017 Philadelphia Marathon merchandise (while supplies last), and check out innovative products and ideas in the worlds of running, fitness and nutrition. Be sure to check out our informative seminars and ask any last-minute questions you have about the course and other Race Weekend activities.
From out of town? The Expo is also the place to get more information about Philadelphia attractions, restaurants and activities. We hope your visit includes a solid race and an exploration of one of America's most vibrant and visitor-friendly cities.
There are several parking garages within a four-block radius of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. It is also easily accessible to numerous SEPTA bus and train stops. Call (215) 580-7800 for information about routes and schedules.
