Marathon weekend is officially underway in Boston, as the John Hancock Sports & Fitness Expo opened its doors at 11 a.m. today to professional and amateur athletes, and the general public looking to get in on the hype.
The expo moved to the Seaport this year, but if you’re wary of taking the Silver Line, there is a complimentary shuttle from the Back Bay area to the Seaport World Trade Center, where runners can enjoy photo opportunities and pick up their bibs.
You can also snag an official marathon celebration jacket, taste a plethora of different healthy treats, and try on as many pairs of shoes as your heart desires (including those awesome Dunkin’ inspired kicks). Other participating booths include lululemon, adidas, Gatorade, Clif Bar, New Balance, Brooks Sports, and ASICS. Even if you’re not running, you can still visit the expo and get in the marathon mood this weekend.
Free entry, Friday 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-7 p.m., Sunday 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Seaport World Trade Center, 200 Seaport Blvd., sportsfitnessexpo.com.
