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 runners, 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.

Bring your new and gently used shoes to the packet pickup/health and fitness expo to donate to Ukrainian refugees.

The Philadelphia Marathon Weekend is pleased to partner with community recycling collect your new and gently used shoes.

Bring your new or gently used shoes (running, casual, dress, adult, kids) to the Packet Pickup/Health and Fitness Expo and donate them in the used shoe collection bin near the bib pick up area. Your used shoes will be kept out of our local landfills and shipped to Hungary and Poland to help with the Ukrainian refugee crisis. 

For each bin of shoes collected, a donation will be made to Students Run Philly Style.

Thank you for your support in helping the environment and those in need.
