It’s still cold on the east coast, and many athletes are itching to get back out on the road to train. While it’s too early for your short sleeve jerseys and bibs, the Endurance Sports Expo is coming to Philly to get you prepared for the coming season.
You can expect to see many familiar names in the cycling, running, and triathlon industry there. The official exhibitor list has not been published yet, but the exhibitor list at the Fredericksburg, VA event earlier this month shows there will be a little something for everyone. Charities, clubs, manufacturers, events, and federations will be packed into the 55,000 square foot Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, located in Oaks, PA. Three classrooms will be running, offering seminars on nutrition, bike fit, strength training, mental conditioning, and many other topics that are helpful to the endurance crowd. Weather permitting, there will also be an outdoor demo area on site. If the event gets you inspired to ride, Summerhill Sports/Saris-CycleOps will be hosting a group ride from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM on Sunday leaving from the convention center. The event is weather permitting, so let’s hope the snow and downpours stay away. The casual, moderately paced ride will take you on a loop around Evansburg State Park. Post ride caffination will be provided.
Not in the Philly area, don’t fret. ESE will be holding another event in Edison, NJ on March 2-3 at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center.
Pre-order your tickets on the website for $7, or pay $10 at the door. Show times are Saturday 10-5, Sunday 10-4.
