Drive a Dodge at the Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon Expo

The Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon rolls into town this Sunday, Aug. 14. Which, for me, brings the best part of any big run in Chicago: the packet pickup at the Expo. So many vendors, so little time.

But the one thing you must be sure to see is the Dodge Ride-n-Drive area, where you'll have the chance to test drive most of the current Dodge lineup, including Avenger, Charger, Durango and Journey. In addition to getting the chance to drive some pretty cool cars, Dodge will donate $20 -- to the charity of your choice -- for every test drive.

Hmmm. Wonder if they'll donate to my Susan G. Komen Marathon for the Cure fundraising efforts. You better believe I'll try!

Heck, even if you're not running this weekend, you might want to show up and browse the expo wares (and discounts!) as well as take a test drive.

The expo details:

  • Where: McCormick Place, Lakeside Center, East Building, Hall D
  • When: Friday, Aug. 12, 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Saturday, Aug 13, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

I'll be there around noon tomorrow (Friday), taking a test drive myself. Maybe I'll see you there.
