Runners by the dozens flooded Hotel Burlington Friday afternoon, in preparation for Sunday’s race.
There is no charge to attend, the expo features 40 local and national vendors as well.
Those we spoke with have been training for months, and are ready for Sunday.
“I am excited, I am excited that it’s finally here. It’s a long training period so I am definitely glad that the day is finally here,” said Katie Jewett of Huntington Vermont.
“I am really excited, um, Burlington is a little bit of a home course for me I have trained on the course all winter and I am really excited to that it’s supposed to be gorgeous weather. So I am really excited just to get out there and see all the fans,” Karen Obertubbesing from Burlington, Vermont.
Those running can stop by the expo until 8 pm Friday, then Saturday from 9 am to 7 pm.
