Be at the Summer Expo to experience it! We have a lot of interactivity at the Expo and the best way to get active and fit is to see, try and learn for yourself.
New This Year!
Gaga is a fast paced, high energy sport played in an octagonal pit. The more players the better! Dubbed a kinder gentler version of dodge ball, the game is played with a soft foam ball, and combines the skills of dodging, striking, running, and jumping, while trying to hit opponents with a ball below the knees. Players need to keep moving to avoid getting hit by the ball. Fun, easy and addictive, everyone gets a serious workout!
A great way to stock up for every season! There will be great deals on clothing, footwear, kayaks & canoes, bikes, and more!
You’ll break a sweat at the Saratoga Rowing Association booth. They’ll have two rowing ergometers for attendees to try. If you can row 500 meters you’ll earn a free T-shirt and candy. Challenge your family and friends for bragging rights!
Run or Walk
Join a 2-3 mile run or one-mile walk from iRun Local’s booth on Sunday at 11am. Organized with the Saratoga Stryders, participants can run, jog or walk with experienced runners and walkers in downtown Saratoga, while leaving their belongings in a secure location at the show.
A complimentary brunch for all participants will follow in the City Center lobby. ON-running is a sponsoring a light brunch, and will have demo shoes at the iRun Local booth on both days of the expo. For more info, contact Jamie at (949) 275-8887 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
