Exhibitor Information

You’re invited to make a powerful connection with our audience of over 45,000 runners and race fans by becoming an exhibitor at the Essentia Health Fitness Expo during Grandma’s Marathon Weekend!

The 2020 expo is Thursday, June 18 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. (set-up from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) and Friday, June 19 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. By the time race day rolls around we will have nearly 45,000 race registrants and fans traveling here from across the globe. The flow of our expo is set up so that all racers must walk through the event in order to obtain their race packets. This results in a busy expo from start to finish!
