The Quad Cities Marathon excitement all starts with the race's ACTIVE ENDEAVORS Health and Fitness Expo "kick-off party" held September 23, 2017. 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 6,500+ participants and more than 14,300+ expo attendees based on last year's participation.

Again this year, the event returns to the largest event arena in the Quad Cities Area. The i wireless 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 i Wireless Center is right on the Mississippi river adjacent to the Radisson Inn, 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.
