- EVENT ALERT SYSTEM IS YELLOW / MODERATE **
Navy Pier’s Festival Hall ‘A’ opened this morning to anxious and enthusiastic runners heading to the Shamrock Shuffle Health and Fitness Expo to pick up their race packets and goody bags. The Expo showcases more than 75 vendors and charity partners and the always popular Nike Run Lucky store.
It is a great opportunity to check out the latest and greatest in running and hook up with running buddies before the big race on Sunday.
Most of us have had a keen eye on the weather this week and while it is still up for grabs what we’ll see Sunday for the race one thing is for sure, it is likely we will have seen better, and worse, conditions! We’ll be at the starting line with our friends ready to bust out that first great race of the year and at finish with one of the best post race parties of the season.
The Expo is open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and a free bike valet is offered this year, for the race too! Remember, there is no race day packet pick-up so get over to Navy Pier Saturday if you haven’t already. Incidentally, I’ll be working packet pick-up from 2:30p until close. Stop by and say ‘hi’.
