3 Days left 'til Rock-n-Roll Seattle
For many runners the pre-race events are just as exciting as the post-race events. Specifically, the expo. For the Seattle Rock-n-Roll the pre-race event will be a Health & Fitness Expo presented by Power Balance. It's a two day expo at the Qwest Field Event Center starting tomorrow (Thursday, June 23) at 11:00 AM and ending Friday, June 24 at 7:00 PM. The expo will feature enough vendors, products, and local businesses to pique curiosities and overwhelm most, but the most important aspect of the expo, however, is to pick-up your race number, swag bag, and t-shirt...and visiting The Balanced Athlete booth, of course. Share with us your race day goals at our booth and take a picture with us to share on our Facebook page.
Contest Alert: While you're filling out your race day goals with us at our expo booth write down your predicted race finish time, take a picture with us at the expo, and the runner closest to their predicted time will win a free pair of shoes. Yes, a free pair of shoes...lets repeat that again: A Free Pair of Shoes! Submit your official chip timed result on our Facebook page and good luck! As a bonus, if you're wearing a Balanced Athlete t-shirt in your expo photo and you win the contest you'll receive an additional surprise along with your free pair of shoes. If you have any questions about the contest ask us at our expo booth. Also, be sure to submit your race day photos on our Facebook page in your Balanced Athlete t-shirts to be eligible for special prizes.
The expo is open and free to the public and there are also other sporting events going on downtown, so expect a crowd and plan ahead. Some things to take note of: On Thursday evening there is a Sounders Game at 7:00 PM at Qwest Field. Although the expo, on Thursday, ends at 7:00 PM parking rates will go from $11 to $30 at 5:00 PM. A similar scenario will be happening on Friday evening as well with a Mariners game at 7:10 PM. The event organizers advise that if you're visiting the expo on Friday make sure you let the parking attendant know where you're going.
