Last updated on July 2nd, 2019 at 10:00 am

The second annual Great Lakes Mutlisport cycling and running expo will be held Saturday, Jan. 30 and Sunday Jan. 31 at the Wisconsin Expo Center at Wisconsin State Fair Park.
The expo is one of the largest of its kind in the U.S. and features over two dozen technical sessions, mini workshops, individual bike time trials, swim stroke analysis, and VO2 testing.
Proceeds from the expo will benefit Racers Against Childhood Cancer (RACC).
"This is a fantastic celebration of everything fitness," said Rick Kattouf, owner of Team Kattouf, expo speaker and exhibitor. "The Expo offers it all. There is nothing else like it in the country."
The expo will also feature the final RACC Winter Series 5k, the Salus Corporate Challenge Walk/Run Across America, and events for children. More than 6,000 people ranging from recreational beginners to elite athletes are expected to attend.
"We’ve scheduled this year’s Expo the weekend before the NFL Super Bowl and two weeks before the 2010 Winter Olympics to fire up those looking for a place to get together to enjoy their passion in the dead of winter," said RACC executive director and co-founder Cole Braun.  "Attendees can do more than shop.  They can try out the latest products and bring their own gear to swim, bike, run, and participate in hands on workshops and clinics."
Topics to be discussed at this year’s free Expo technical sessions and mini-workshops include Acupuncture and Herbal Remedies for the Treatment of Sports Injuries, Compression Clothing: How to Use for Energy & Recovery, Core Strength in 10 minutes a Day, Swim Technique and Open Water Swimming, Cyclist’s Toolkit for Staying Healthy, and Basic Running Mechanics and Shoe Selection. The Expo also features a series of two-hour workshops and personal testing/analysis opportunities, all of which require advance registration and a fee.  Participants receive free Expo entry and premium items such as technical clothing and detailed workbooks.  Please monitor the Expo web site www.multisportexpo.com and Facebook Fan Page to register for workshops and testing/analysis events.
Expo entry fees are $7 in advance or $10 at the door.  The first 4,000 attendees receive a goodie bag with valuable coupons and discounts valued at more than $150 and the first 1,000 receive a special RACC gift.
