Austin Full Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K Packet Pick Up

The first step to starting the 2023 Ascension Seton Austin Marathon is picking up your race packet at the Expo

The Austin Marathon Health & Fitness Expo is the perfect place to find all of your running needs, plus it’s a great place to have fun. From the latest trends in running apparel, to nutrition and supplements, you’re sure to find something that fits your needs. Plus, you can meet with our pace team and other runners and get some great race tips! The expo is open to the public so feel free to invite friends and family to meet up with you after you pick up your packet.

There are plenty of opportunities for shopping and discovering new products, so plan plenty of time to explore all there is offered. Plus don’t forget to visit the 2024 Austin Marathon booth to lock in exclusive pricing for next year that will only be available at the expo.
