Oct. 14-15, 2022 at Huntington Place (formerly TCF Center/Cobo Center)

The Health & Fitness Expo will feature exhibitors offering 2022 marathon merchandise and the latest running footwear, apparel, nutrition, technology and much more. The expo is free and open to the public!

It will be held in downtown Detroit at Huntington Place’s Hall B.

Expo hours

1-7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14
10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15

Parking

Because Huntington Place hosts multiple events per day, expect heavy congestion and parking delays. We suggest parking in outlying areas (think Midtown, Greektown, Campus Martius, etc.) and using transportation other than cars to get to Huntington Place, such as the QLINE and the Detroit People Mover. Or try those new rentable scooters or Detroit’s nonprofit bike share to zip around the city. Grab a coffee, visit a new restaurant or enjoy the RiverWalk.

Info for race participants

For international events (Full Marathon, International Half-Marathon, Marathon Relay, The Supreme and The Wonder): You must bring proper proof of identity to receive your race number. For most participants, this means a Passport, Passport Card, or Enhanced Driver’s License.  Please click here for a complete listing of accepted documentation. On Sept. 26, 2022, the Government of Canada announced it was ceasing all COVID-19-related for entering the country. That means proof of vaccination will not be required to pick up a bib at the expo. More information about Canada’s rule changes can be found here.

For domestic events (U.S.-Only Half-Marathon, 5K, 1-Mile, Kids Fun Run and The Temptation): You must bring proper proof of identity to receive your race number. For most participants, this means a driver’s license. All identification documents must have a photo, name and date of birth. If a participant is younger than 16 years of age, a parent/guardian may pick up the child’s race number.

Packet pickup

We will assign bib numbers using the dynamic bib distribution system. This means we will not be assigning bib numbers prior to the Health & Fitness Expo. Instead, your bib number will be assigned when you pick up your race materials. Note: Pre-assigned bib numbers will be given to participants in the Disabilities Division, Marathon Relay and Challenge Series.

For participants in the full Marathon, both Half Marathons, the 5K, 1-Mile and Meijer Kids Fun Run: During race week, you will receive an email with a QR code that volunteers at the Expo will use to pull up your registration. Please either print out or have that QR code accessible on your phone when you arrive at the Expo.

Proceed to the pickup area for your specific event. The volunteer will scan your QR code and assign your bib number. In addition to your bib number, you will be given your event bag (safety pins, distance sticker, race wrap and other sponsor gifts) as well as your long-sleeved technical shirt.
