Packet Pickup/Health & Fitness Expo

To kick off the Philadelphia Marathon Weekend, the Health & Fitness Expo takes over downtown Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Convention Center for two days during race weekend. With vendors showcasing the newest running apparel, shoes and accessories, distributing product samples, and offering tips on health and fitness, the Expo is a valuable event for all athletes, whether seasoned and serious or just starting out.

The Expo, which is free, offers much more than the basics. This is the place to purchase official Philadelphia Marathon Weekend merchandise (while supplies last), and check out innovative products and ideas in the worlds of running, fitness and nutrition.

From out of town? The Expo is also the place to get more information about Philadelphia attractions, restaurants and activities. We hope your visit includes a solid race and an exploration of one of America's most vibrant and visitor-friendly cities.

There are several parking garages within a four-block radius of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. It is also easily accessible to numerous SEPTA bus and train stops. Call (215) 580-7800 for information about routes and schedules.

The Philadelphia Marathon Weekend requests that all entrants to the Marathon Expo refrain from bringing any large bags (backpacks, duffel bags, suitcases, etc.) to the Pennsylvania Convention Center. We request that these items remain at your home, place of work or hotel room. All bags that enter the Expo are subject to inspection.

  • Bring your government-issued photo ID. We require a government-issued ID to verify the athlete’s name only, and to make sure that the name on the athlete’s ID matches that on the athlete’s registration.
  • If a representative is picking up your race materials, you must provide them with your bib number and government-issued photo ID. They will also need to show their own government-issued photo ID. 
  • Review your bib information. If corrections are needed, go to the Solution Center at the Expo when you pick up your bib.
  • Fill out the emergency information on the back of your bib. It is our first and best source of knowledge to assist you in the event of an emergency.
  • There is no race day packet pick-up.  All race packets must be picked up at the Health & Fitness Expo.
