November 10, 2023
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (November 10, 2023) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Registration is now open for the 2024 Little Rock Marathon Health and Fitness Expo, presented by the Hatcher Agency. The two day event features vendors and exhibitors showcasing products and services geared toward runners, walkers and health-minded consumers.
The Expo will take place March 1 – March 2 in Little Rock’s Statehouse Convention Center and is free to the public. Late registration for races will also be available, depending on availability.
According to Executive Director Geneva Lamm, the Expo is a key component of the marathon weekend’s activities. The event serves as a headquarters for athletes, volunteers and spectators. “We’re excited to open registration for the 2024 Health and Fitness Expo,” Lamm said. “Since the Expo is open to the public, vendors are able to capture a wider audience and promote their brands beyond than just our Athletes,” she said.
Exhibitors already registered for the event include Flyway Brewing, Loreal USA, Rock City Running, Baptist Health Weight & Nutrition Center, and Arkansas Blue Cross/Blue Shield.
Marathon organizers are seeing higher early registration numbers for the race, which Lamm said she hopes will translate to a larger showing at the Expo as well. The Expo features exhibitors showcasing a wide array of products and services geared toward runners, walkers and health-minded consumers, as well as the latest advancements in distance running and walking, fitness and nutrition.
