Health & Fitness Expo

Participants, friends and family as well as the Eugene community can all enjoy what is always a festive atmosphere with music, beverages, food and the many exhibitors who come to Eugene!  The 2- day Health & Fitness Expo will again be held in huge tents on the soccer fields adjacent to Hayward Field.  This provides a chance for runners to see where they will finish their race and experience the buzz and excitement that always surrounds historical Hayward Field!  Shop cool vendors, collect freebies, learn about new products, enjoy a cold beer, get a tattoo (temporary!) and get excited to race!

The expo is your primary opportunity to pick up your race packet – this includes your bib number with timing tag attached and t-shirt.

Registration Information 


In 2016, we were proud to be named the first race in the Northwest to achieve Gold Level Certification from the Council for Responsible Sport.  We have also been named, “Top 10 Green Event in North America” by Runner’s World.  By using a “virtual” goodie bag we continue to save 1000’s of pounds of paper and cardboard each year.  Participants will receive an email the Friday before race day inviting them to get coupons and sponsor offers in our VIRTUAL EVENT BAG.   Watch your inbox!

At the Health & Fitness Expo participants receive a “Eugene Marathon” clear bag for gear check purposes (and to collect your Expo goodies).  Then, on race day, participants receive our popular reusable goodie bag pre-packed with refueling food and water when they cross the finish line!


Our FREE Eugene Marathon temporary tattoos were a HUGE hit in 2016.  Look for this fun way to show your spirit again in 2017.  Get inked on us!


New this year, pre-race DJ Yoga Flow!  Chelsea from Hard Core Yoga and DJ Mandy Mac will take you on a jubilant, balanced & spicy yoga journey!  Strike your warrior pose while listening to the ultimate, smooth and soulful set.  The event will be from 4:00-5:00 on the soccer fields right outside the Expo!  Arrive 20 minutes early to secure your spot.  Bring your mat and your funky flow!  Mats provided for those coming from out of town.  This experience will take you to another level and get you ready for race day.  Schedule your visit to the Expo accordingly!  Get updated info and invite your friends.


We will again partner with local restaurants to provide Eugene Marathon participants dinner specials on pre-race Saturday.  Traditionally runners like to fuel up with pasta!  Check out some of the local restaurants providing Eugene Marathon pasta specials and discounts on our Things To Do webpage.  Restaurants are continually added as we get closer to race day!


Bring your used shoes to the Health & Fitness Expo. We will donate them to Soles4Souls.  Last year we recycled nearly 600 pairs of shoes – help us get to 1,000 pairs of recycled shoes.  Every pair you donate earns one raffle ticket for a free entry into the 2018 Marathon!
