Goody Bag Information
The Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon Virtual Goody Bag Program is a great way to get information on your goods and/or services in front of many potential customers. It is extremely cost effective too! The Marathon will stuff 9,000 goody bags and will distribute them to all registered marathoners, half marathoners, relay runners, 5K, and Covenant Kids Run participants. Goody bags are an item that runners look forward to and enjoy going through the items inside. Items can include a tangible item in the bags themselves or you can insert a brochure/flier in our Virtual Goody Bag.
Interested in getting involved? Contact us for more information.
The Health & Fitness Expo will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at the Knoxville Convention Center (701 Henley Street), located across Clinch Avenue from the Holiday Inn at World’s Fair Park. The Expo, which is the center of all pre-race activities, will include exhibitors featuring running and fitness apparel, shoes and other supplies, as well as products and services in fitness, sports and nutrition. The Expo will also feature exhibitors in other areas of interest to participants, families, and friends. We anticipate having 9,000 event participants all of whom are required to visit the Expo during scheduled hours to obtain their official race packet. With friends and families and the fact that the Expo is free to the general public, we expect total Expo attendance to be between 17,000 and 18,000 people!
