Photos: The 2017 Boston Marathon Bib Pick Up and Fitness Expo
Today was the first step in a long journey for Boston Marathon runners. At the John Hancock Sports and Fitness Expo and bib pick up, both professional and non-professional runners picked up their numbers. Downstairs, the Hynes Convention Center was packed with every kind of fitness and workout goodie you could imagine. Brands including Asics, Adidas, North Face, and even Gronk Fitness were there selling athletic apparel. Samples of Nuun, Kind, and Gatorade were everywhere. And of course, Sam Adams was pouring out its 26.2 brew to give everyone a jump start on pre-marathon carb loading.
Free entry. Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Hynes Convention Center, 900 Boylston St., Boston, sportsfitnessexpo.com.
