INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The country's largest half marathon is just days away.
The 500 Festival Mini-Marathon Expo is Thursday and Friday at the Indianapolis Convention Center. It takes place in Halls A and B this year.
Nearly 40,000 people are expected to browse through exhibits at the Mini-Marathon expo, and pick up their race packets. Runners cannot pick up their packets the morning of the race.
The 36th running of the race is sold out, as it’s been the past 11 years.
There are more than 100 exhibits to take a look at, making this the largest expo to date. Runners will be able to take a look at the latest running gear, find health tips, and even try new food and fitness products.
Also new this year: a virtual goodie bag - meaning you can download coupons from the Internet even before you get to the Convention Center.
The Expo runs from 4 to 8 Thursday evening and from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday.
It's free and open to the public. Even if you're not running, you can still come down to check out the expo. You’ll also be able to register for the 2013 Mini-Marathon at the expo as well.
