Expo FAQ

Why is the Expo changing?

We wanted to make your Expo experience even bigger and better. You’ll still have the opportunity to visit our loyal, incredible vendors only now you’ll get twice the experience. We also saw this as a great way to join forces with other like-minded outdoor activity enthusiasts, which aligns with GO! St. Louis’ commitment to inspiring individuals and families in the St. Louis region to adopt a healthy an active lifestyle year-round. 

The Gateway Expo + Summit charges admission. Do I have to pay for admission just to pick up my packet? 

NO! Marathon Weekend participants will have free access to the expo and all it has to offer. We have an exclusive GO! St. Louis entrance at the expo, so when you arrive, go to Hall 4  on Level One for free Expo entry.

What’s the best way to get to America’s Center?

The America’s Center is located at 701 Washington Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri, 63101. If you drive, ample parking is available for a fee in nearby lots. You can also take advantage of St. Louis’ MetroLink light rail system. Get off at the Convention Center station and the America’s Center is a short two blocks away. 

When can I pick up my race packet?

The dates and times for the Expo and packet pickup are  Friday, March 27, from noon to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, March 28, from 10:00 a.m. to 6 p.m.  All full-marathon, half-marathon, 10K runners, and marathon relay teams are required to pick up their packets at the expo. There is no race day pick up for these events. 5K participants are strongly encouraged to pick up their packets before race day to avoid any possible delays the day of the race.

Do all four members of my relay team need to pick up their race packets individually?

No, we require only the relay team captain or a designated team member to pick up all four team member’s bags. We do not release individual packets to team members. We  encourage all members of a relay team to visit the Expo and enjoy the experience as a team, if possible.

Can I pick up another participant’s race packet?

Although we stress that it is very important that every registered participant pick up their own bag, we do realize that in some cases it is not feasible. If a participant is not able to attend the Expo and pick up their own bag, they can complete a Packet Pickup Authorization Form, which allows someone to complete the process. No race bags will be released to an individual who does not have the proper form. A limit of ONE additional bag per person is enforced.
