As everyone gears up for the Boilermaker on Sunday, stop by the Boilermaker Expo Friday and Saturday.  Whether you're picking up a race packet or just want some free fun this weekend, the Boilermaker  Expo has it.   All the Expo events take place at MVCC's Utica Campus.

There's so much happening at the Expo.  Fitness activities, exhibits, race merchandise, pasta dinner, healthy cooking demonstrations, you can sample products, enjoy live entertainment, a Q&A with experts on nutrition, running, injuries and training, and lots more.  Expo hours are Friday July 12th from 12 to 7 and Saturday July 13th from 8-4:30 at MVCC in Utica.

Race packet info: You must have a photo ID to pick up your packet for the 15K, 5K or 3 mile walk.  The Boilermaker doesn't encourage you to pick up the race packet for another runner but should you have to do that, you must have that runner's photo ID.

Get your tickets at the Boilermaker Expo for the annual pasta dinner to benefit the United Way.  The pasta dinner, Sat night from 3-5 at the Expo, features all you can eat past, saled bread, dessert and beverages.  Tickets are 7 dollars.

Runner's Forum Speakers:  Bill Rodgers, Kathrine Switzer, Roger Robinson, Cindy Chan Phillips and John Colianni MD.  They'll speak from 3-4:30 at the Expo.
