Carlsbad Marathon and Half Marathon Expo
Get some free samples while they last.
Next Friday, the 25th is the start of the Carlsbad Marathon and Half Marathon expo event. The event is open to the public and is full of vendors who are anxious to give out a few sample products.
The big tent will be located in the southwest corner of the Plaza Camino Real shopping center. The hours are Friday 2 pm to 6 pm, Saturday 10 am to 5 pm, and Sunday 7 am to noon.
All 10,000 participants must attend the expo and pick up their race bib. The free tee shirts are also located at the expo.
These expos are always abuzz with excited runners and their families but they’re also a great way to check out new running gear and gadgets.
