If you want to check out the latest and greatest gear, talk to a world class athlete or pick the brain of some of the top coaches in the world of endurance sports, then don't miss the 2010 Great Lakes Multisport,Cycling and Running Expo.
There couldn't be a better time for an event like this, the weekend before the Super Bowl and two weeks before the 2010 Winter Olympics. It's much more than an expo. It's a charity event, a race, a clinic and a great way to get amped for the new race season.
Proceeds benefit Racers Against Childhood Cancer (RACC), who use their passion and competitive spirit to raise money for research and the fight to defeat childhood cancer.
If you're looking for churros and stale popcorn, this is the wrong expo. Bring workout clothes, get ready to workout and have fun.
