OAKS, Pa. (CBS) – There’s an expo aimed at endurance sport and triathlon enthusiasts in Montgomery County Saturday and Sunday.
Organizers say it’s now the largest of its kind in the country.
It is the fourth annual Endurance Sports Expo in Oaks.
Organizer Chip Homeier says this year’s event features over 200 vendors with everything from Cycling shops to running apparel, coaches and race directors from all over.
“This is a unique opportunity for people to come in [during] a time of year where they can get excited for the upcoming season [and] look at new products,” says Homeier.
You can take the latest bike models out for a test spin on the Perkiomen Trail, and, Homeier says, bring your swim gear and a USB thumb drive, as this year, endless pools will have a set-up where you can jump in and swim and they’ll video your stroke and give you a free copy.
There are also over 60 hours of free seminars with coaches, athletes and other industry experts.
