The Navy Ten Nautical Miler Race Expo is a showcase of products and services geared toward runners, walkers, military and health minded consumers and continues to grow each year.
The Expo area is race weekend Headquarters and the home of packet pick-up for 1,800 athletes, check-in for over 400 volunteers, and the hang-out for families, spectators, and participants! On Race-Day, this area also serves as our Post-Race Party with music, food, and awards and you will find a constant buzz of attendees perusing the various vendor booths present.
The Navy Ten Nautical Miler Race Expo is an excellent opportunity for a representative of your company to interact directly with over two-thousand customers, including our military patrons, and to raise awareness of your organization within the military and athletic communities!

Can I register for the race?
Exhibitors are welcome to register for the race at the registration public rate. Please note, the Expo area is still open during the Navy Ten Nautical Miler race. We are not responsible for your booth. Some vendors choose to have their space set up on Saturday only. This is a question in the registration form.
Can I ship items directly to the exhibit hall?
We prefer that NO shipping is made directly to the building. If you have an emergency situation and may require an exception, you must make arrangements with the Vendor Chair in advance or your delivery will not be accepted.
Is the exhibit hall wireless?
The N-82 Gymnasium does have free wireless internet for basic web browsing. The free wireless is a courtesy therefore we cannot guarantee 100% uptime or full bandwidth and some services might be restricted. To provide our vendors with the best access, we do restrict the Wi-Fi access to our vendors only with a special access code for use. Please do not share the code with others as it will significantly slow-down everyone’s service.
How much is electricity?
Electricity is available in the facility for no additional charge; however, you will be required to provide your own 50’ extension cord to access it from your booth.
Is the facility carpeted?
No. The facility is a gymnasium with traditional gym wood flooring. You are welcomed to bring your own floor or carpet mats to put down.
Where can I park my car?
Parking at the event is free and conveniently located next to the building. On Sunday, all vendors will receive a pass for our vendor parking lot with easier access to loading doors for move-out.
Will I receive my badge in the mail?
No, badges will be available at your booth. 2 badges per 10x10 booth are provided complimentary.
How does Load in/out work?
Loading in/out will be a drive in process. Exhibitors will drive up to the loading doors on the north side of the facility, unload quickly, and then park their vehicle in one of the facility parking lots. Directions will be emailed to you. The loading area is on level ground and is not a ‘dock’ style. There is a very large bay door so it is easy to move larger items into the facility. We recommend you bring a small hand-cart to make loading faster and easier. You MAY NOT drag items across the floors or you may cause significant damage.
