The 6th annual Go Commando Health and Fitness Expo was held with the half-marathon and 5k run. Approximately 25 vendors set up for the expo inside the Old Glory Distillery Friday and Saturday, October 14 and 15. The Runners Hub presented the expo and had a booth filled with all kinds of snacks and supplements great for any runner.
Vendors offered free goodies for runners, walkers and the community that is interested in a healthy lifestyle.
Hundreds visited the numerous booths at the expo that showcased the latest in nutrition, health and beauty products and the newest running apparel. Visitors got to enjoy pre-workout and protein samples, demonstrations and one-on-one interaction with some of the best in the business, including free chair massages from The Pink Haired LMT.
Those competing in the Go Commando half-marathon and 5k were able to pick up their race packets with their swag bag and enjoy the expo filled with the sponsors of the race.
The popular event had approximately 650 participants with another 400 deployed Fort Campbell soldiers competing in the Shadow Run in Afghanistan. Members of the military in Afghanistan ran the Go Commando simultaneously with the event held in Clarksville. It is one of the major fundraising events held by the Clarksville Rotary Club. All proceeds will be put back into the community through local non-profits supported by the club.
The expo and race were relocated this year from Liberty Park to Old Glory Distillery with a new, flatter course. Nearly 100 volunteers helped make the expo and race happen who started planning the event months in advance.
