Collect your race number & goodie bag at the expo
Our Expo – the largest running-related show in the Western Cape – takes place at the Good Hope Centre from Wednesday 4 to Friday 6 April and gives you a chance to browse around loads of interesting running-related stands. Check your magazine or the website for the opening times. You must collect your race number and goodie bag from the Expo..
Norrie Williamson, the Old Mutual Virtual Coach, will be at the Old Mutual stand with pacing wristbands and some final race tips. Get your blood pressure and cholesterol tested and pick up a personalised supporter poster or have a much-needed foot massage. Pop into the PUMA Retail Store where you will find their latest products and special commemorative event merchandise. All registered runners receive 25% off all PUMA products when showing their race numbers.
Over the years, the Expo has become much more than just a running expo, and now includes top sporting brands, apparel, supplements, outdoor adventure sports and sporting tours, to name just a few. It is an opportunity for all sport enthusiasts to experience the latest trends in the running and sporting arena and to be part of the exciting atmosphere leading up to the “world’s most beautiful marathon”.
Local runners are encouraged to visit the Expo and register on Wednesday to avoid the rush and busiest time on Good Friday, which is when most of the up country runners and internationals register. If you can’t find parking right outside the Expo and surrounds, then there’s also secure parking on the Grand Parade, which is a short walk from the Good Hope Centre.
