As many people are no doubt aware, EventCity is Manchester will be home to the Run Bike and Swim expo for the next three days. I'll be blogging live from the event, updating this page as I go, letting you know what to expect from the weekend. I'll also be letting you know my top running finds.
Overall the expo was heavily favoured towards cycling and triathlons. There are some interesting stalls for running there but it pales in significance when compared to the amount of the expo dedicated to all things bikes. There was only a couple of clothing companies, a hand full of race organisers and no shoe companies at all.
All stands that I talked to took card payments but there is a cash machine at the entrance. There's also quite a few toilets and a couple of places to sit to eat and drink. There's three presentation stages but I didn't really pay much attention to them to be honest. Tomorrow and Sunday has quite a few talks happening, including Jo pavey.
8:14am - Dog crazy, knows I'm going out.
11:50am - Really impressed with Unilite. Really great head torches and there's a discount of between 10 and 20% on retail prices depending on the model. The best ones are the ones that can be turned on and offer by a quick hand swipe thanks to the sensor (good for bottom challange people like me). The Sensor head lights are £25 or £30 depending on amount of power. http://www.uni-lite.com/
