ASICS Sports & Leisure Expo Back Up and Running

A time-honoured highlight of the annual Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon weekend is back after a two-year coronavirus-induced hiatus.

The ASICS Sport & Leisure Expo, Australia’s largest free admission sports expo, is tipped to attract more than 25,000 visitors to the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre at Broadbeach from Thursday 30 June to Saturday 2 July.

The 2022 event will feature more than 60 exhibitors in footwear and fashion, the latest in fitness technology, nutrition and wellbeing and all-important race day information for the race-deprived competitors who will finally  line up on the streets of the Gold Coast on 2 and 3 July.

According to Events Management Queensland General Manager Cameron Hart, the Expo provides a great opportunity for everyone to discover the very latest active and performance clothing trends, sports technology, nutrition and other expert advice on how to stay fit and healthy.

“The ASICS Sport & Leisure Expo runs beside our participant registration and race kit collection area and is a favourite go-to for people wanting to get their heads around the latest running gear and trends,” Mr Hart said.

“It’s also the place to snag a clothing or footwear bargain or two with ASICS setting up their biggest Australian discount pop-up store each year at our event.

“It’s great to have the Expo back as the kick-off and first official event of the 42nd Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon,” he said.

The 2022 Village Roadshow Theme Parks Gold Coast Marathon weekend will also feature the ASICS Half Marathon, Southern Cross University 10km Run, Gold Coast Airport 5km Run, the Health and Wellbeing Queensland 2km and 4km Junior Dashes and the always-hotly-contested CPL 42km and 10km wheelchair races.

The Gold Coast Double 63.3km event – contested by hardy runners competing in both Saturday’s half and Sunday’s full marathon – will also be contested.
