Thousands of runners will begin trickling into the Twin Ports Thursday as Grandma's Marathon festivities inch closer and closer.
Thursday is the beginning of the Essentia Health Fitness Expo.
Not only can runners begin picking up their race packets at the DECC, but there will also be dozens of booths set up. Vendors will be selling everything from running gear to race fuel and much more.
The Expo runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday
It will be open again Friday from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
