The Quad Cities Marathon excitement all starts with the race's ACTIVE ENDEAVORS Health and Fitness Expo held on Saturday of race weekend. The Expo brings together athletes, family members, sports enthusiasts, and guests of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels, making it the perfect showcase for your fitness-related product or service. The Expo is free and open to the public. In conjunction, free seminars on a number of topics relating to running/walking, health, beauty and fitness, and the course overview will be offered. All race participants are required to pick up their packets and race numbers at the Expo. We anticipate over 6,000+ participants and more than 10,000+ expo attendees.
Again this year, the event returns to the largest event arena in the Quad Cities Area, the TaxSlayer Cener. The TaxSlayer Center contains 11,000 square feet of lobby space, and 15,000 square feet of upper bowl floor space, each featuring high-visibility exhibit space, high ceilings, with both natural light and artificial light, creating an inviting environment for both exhibitors and customers.
The TaxSlayer Center is on the banks of the Mississippi river adjacent to the Radisson on John Deere Commons, Moline, the John Deere Pavilion, and within walking distance of Downtown Moline, making it an attractive family destination for both local and out-of-state race participants.
