New Expo Location
In 2018, Registration, Packet Pickup, and the Youth & Fitness & Dog Expos moved to the parking lot next to the finish line.
This new location made it more convenient for expo attendees to watch their loved ones finish their races and head directly into the expos.
Parking will be available in the Big Edwards Theater parking lot.
