Marathon EXPO

October 5 – 7, 2018 / Aupark Košice

An inseparable part of the Marathon in Košice is the traditional concept of the open-air Expo, where all the presentations of products and services connected with running and an active lifestyle are set out in the square outside the Aupark Košice.

In this way the KPM Expo is located in the heart of the town, very close to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, the historical pedestrian zone, and the start and finish areas for the various races. This means that in addition to the thousands of active Marathon participants picking up their starting numbers just inside the Aupark, the exhibitors have the chance to appeal to the general public naturally moving around in this exhibition space. In this way the KPM Expo offers all visitors an attractive accompanying programme, non-stop information on what is currently happening in the main programme, and of course a wide range of sports gear for recreational as well as professional sportspeople.

Friday, October 5, 2018 / 9.00 AM – 7.00 PM
Saturday, October 6, 2018 / 9.00 AM – 7.00 PM
