What to do at the Expo

After you get your race number take a walk through our Expo. There will be food and drinks to sample, snacks to purchase,  new fitness programs to try out, as well as a chance to find out about some of the other local races in the area. The Raleigh area Race Director community is a very tight-knit group and we are excited to promote many of the other great runs from 5K to ultra marathons relay events.

If you are a runner and planning on joining a pace team, you'll signup for that at the Expo. In addition, if you are planning on getting a pre-race massage go ahead and pre-pay for that at the Expo so you can get to the top of the waiting list after your run!

Many of our sponsors and other vendors will be in attendance offering samples and special discounts for purchases made during the expo. In addition, there will be some Tobacco Road Marathon and Half Marathon merchandise available for purchase only at the expo.
