The IMT Des Moines Marathon schedule of family-friendly activities kicks off with the two-day Scheels Sports & Fitness Expo. Exhibitors from around the country are in Des Moines to offer athletes, families and guests the latest in fitness apparel, accessories and adventures. Take some time before the big race to relax and celebrate the sport of running at the Scheels Sports & Fitness Expo. You can attend an informative session at the MidAmerican Energy Speaker Series, meet Kathrine Switzer and even win some great giveaways like a pair of Altra running shoes.
The Scheels Sports & Fitness Expo is located in Hy-Vee Hall at the Iowa Events Center. It is free and open to the public!
