Approximately 1,700 people attended the first Expo in 2014. The event — free and open to the general public — is held in conjunction with the April 18 Wenatchee Marathon, Half-Marathon and 10K race. The running race, which will celebrate its 11th anniversary this year, starts and finishes right outside the convention center.
“We are going to have a really great mix of running and outdoor recreation vendors and organizations at the Expo as well as presentations on the sport of running by several experts,” said Lynda Finegold of TedDriven, which puts on the event as well as the marathon, half-marathon and 10K the following day.
The Expo will be open to the public from noon to 8 p.m.
