Meanwhile, on Friday, September 30th, and Saturday, October 1st, at the Rheinpark am Staatenhaus, the Cologne Marathon Expo will take place, a leading trade fair dedicated to sports and leisure. The Marathon Expo is one of the most important European events for sports and fitness.

The large shopping – sports center set up in the heart of the city is thus a prelude to the German race that will take place on Sunday. The fair, with free access, offers the opportunity to learn about new trends and to test new products made by major manufacturers.

The exhibition will feature the latest trends in shoes, clothing and technologies for endurance sports such as running, skating, hand biking, Nordic walking and cycling. The event is accompanied by a rich program of conferences and meetings.
