Be sure to check out Sidney Dairy Barn Moo Mobile, La Paloma, and Watson's Chicken. Meijer and Christie Clinic will also be on hand with activities.

To keep us entertained, 90's Daughter will be on hand to keep us singing and dancing while we celebrate you completing the race.


Wooden Nickel Program

Every year, we distribute Wooden Nickels to runners at the Health & Fitness Expo. These nickels are good for discounts at many area businesses from April 28–May 7, 2022. Whether you're looking for a treat before the race, something to eat after, or some good deals on shopping spots around town, we have something for you. Check out the list of current deals and check back often as these get updated! Come see us at booth 55 to pick up your nickels!
