About This Spot
Fifty bands play live on 27 entertainment stages throughout the course while hundreds of high school cheerleaders cheer on participants. More music awaits at the free post-race concert in downtown's Bridgestone Arena. Past performers include Brad Paisley, Martina McBride, Jo Dee Messina, Diamond Rio and Phil Vassar. A two-day expo precedes race day festivities with over 60 exhibits featuring free samples, the latest running shoes, sports apparel, and health and nutrition products.  The marathon welcomes more than 30,000 runners the last Saturday of April.
