Expo held for Guam International Marathon

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - The Guam International Marathon isn't until Sunday, but the thousands of runners registered to participate can start the festivities early with the GIM Race Expo that started today and extends to tomorrow evening.

The expo features sponsored booths, official GIM event merchandise, live entertainment and a photo booth. Race director Ben Ferguson says the expo also serves as the mandatory packet pick-up location for all GIM participants, saying, "Most large running events, like the Honolulu marathon, Boston marathon, the Tokyo marathon come with a race expo and it provides race organizers with the opportunity to add value to the event by doing cultural things and entertainment that the runner otherwise wouldn't be able to experience so I thought it would be a great addition to our event this year."

We should note that race packets will not be available on race day. Ferguson says close to 2,900 runners are registered for the event which is a 32% increase from last year's inaugural event. Of that count, one thousand runners are from Japan and 300 runners are from Korea. The race expo will wrap-up at 6 this evening but will reopen from 10am to 6pm on Saturday at the Pacific Islands Club's Pacific Pavilion.
