Manchester Expo Signs Paula

Paula Radcliffe with friends

Organisers of Run Expo in Manchester are upping the pace ahead of the big event dates of 18-20 March with news that megastar Paula Radcliffe has been added to the starting line-up. Britain's marathon heroine will be on stage and answering questions and sharing her knowledge and experience of distance running with visitors.

Run Expo is a brilliant festival of running, featuring the latest apparel and equipment available, indoor racing, live coaching demos and seminars, celebrity guest appearances, exclusive show offers and giveaways, and much more. Whether you’re a seasoned athlete or a complete newcomer to the sport, Run Expo has something for you.

An exciting addition to the 2016 event is an indoor, 800m racing track which will play host to the one mile running event, Run Like A Legend. The Steve Cram-organised event will be held within the exhibition halls! If you fancy putting your winter training to the test, Run Expo will provide an opportunity like nothing you’ve seen before. Head to the Run Like A Legend website for all the details.

At Run Expo you can take advantage of exclusive discounts from a great array of exhibitors. Over the three days of the Expo, there will be a number of big competitions (some of which might require you to get a sweat on!) and prize giveaways.

2016’s event looks set to be bigger and better than ever, so don’t miss out. Run Expo runs alongside Swim Expo, Bike Expo and Tri Expo. One ticket will entitle you to access all four Expos.
