The 2020 Health & Fitness Expo is held at the Monterey Conference Center at 1 Portola Plaza in Monterey. It is adjacent to the Portola Hotel & Spa and across the street from the Monterey Marriott.

Dates and hours are Friday, April 24, from 12 noon to 6 PM and Saturday, April 25, from 9:30 AM to 6 PM.


Welcome to the 2020 Health & Fitness Expo to be held in conjunction with the 35th presentation of the Big Sur International Marathon. In 2020 we will continue our tradition of staging a world-class event with an emphasis on the health and fitness benefits associated with cardiovascular exercise. We look forward to seeing a wide spectrum of dedicated vendors displaying a variety of products and services to browse through.

We would like the 2020 Health & Fitness Expo to be a fun and informative event with a focus on health screening checks and demonstrations; sports medicine and fitness programs; the latest in fitness clothing, shoes and training aids; and a variety of other run and walk related products and services.

We invite vendors and exhibitors to participate in our Virtual Race Bag promotional opportunity. For more information on how this works, contact or call Hillary Fujii at 831.625.6226.
