The festivities surrounding this weekend’s Tacoma City Marathon started Friday afternoon with a two-day running expo.

Runners in their final stages of preparation for Sunday's race, trickled into the Bicentennial Pavilion at the Hotel Murano on Friday to collect their entry packets and visit booths run by various vendors.

Some expo attendees even ducked out for a quick run. The expo is highlighted by a presentation by running guru Bart Yasso on Saturday at 4:30 p.m.

The marathon start’s Sunday at 7 a.m. at Tacoma Narrows Airport and finishes at the Tacoma Art Museum. The half marathon starts at 8 a.m. and has a new course this year. It also starts at the airport and finishes at the museum. Registration for the races remains open through Saturday.
