On Sunday, October 7, the 9th annual Mohawk Hudson River Marathon and Hannaford Half Marathon will bring 3,000 runners from upstate New York, neighboring states, Canada and abroad to the Capital Region.
Runner’s World magazine, has highlighted the race and says, “The Mohawk Hudson provides all the amenities of a major marathon and none of the hassles.”
One of the race amenities is the expanded Expo and Packet Pick-Up on Saturday, October 6 from 10am-5pm at the brand new Albany Capital Center! The expo is free admission and open to the public. The show has doubled in size to allow for more vendors and options for runners, attendees, family and friends to get great deals, learn, sample from a variety of running, summer and winter sports (alpine and cross country skiing and snowshoeing), health/fitness and travel exhibitors. Exhibitor categories include running, health, fitness, nutrition, travel, alpine and cross country skiing, snowshoeing, green living and more.
GreenLayer Sports will be at the show selling official race merchandise, such as shirts, jackets and race branded items. National Running Center will be on hand with running clothes, shoes, and last minute purchases like gels, bars and more. IllumiNITE will be selling their reflective clothing and accessories for runners, cyclists and triathletes.
Bring your lightly worn running shoes to the expo. Drop off bins will be available as you enter the show floor. Donations go to Dunk Your Kicks, a fundraising program of The Max Cure Foundation, who collects gently used shoes and resells them as affordable footwear in developing nations to raise money for families battling pediatric cancer. Over 200 million pair of shoes are thrown away in US landfills every year. A majority of these shoes have life left in them. This campaign is facilitated by Rethink Nation, a recycler who sells those shoes to exporters, which distributes them in emerging countries as part of the Affordable Clothing Market. MCF receives up to $1 per pair based on the quality of the shoes collected.
We will also collect non-perishable food items near the show entrance to benefit Food Pantries for the Capital District. Please bring cans or boxes to help the hungry in our region. This is a coalition of 60 food pantries in Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga and Schenectady counties, providing funds, delivery, coordination, education and training to member food pantries. See you there!
