Two Oceans Expo again a hit

Totalsports showcased their running products
Sportsmans Warehouse products
were a great hit with the runners
The Two Oceans Marathon Expo was, once again, a hub of activity as runners, their friends and families and other interested Capetonians flocked to the Good Hope Centre between 20-22 April to see the latest running-related goods and stock up on accessories. Especially the stands of nutritional product brands were swamped by visitors buying fuel for the race. On the enormous Jamaican-themed stand of race sponsor Puma, hopeful sprinters tried to match their time to that of Usain Bolt, competing for the R10 000 sponsorship from Puma for the fastest man and woman.  With long queues of people eager to take up the expo deals on offer, the spectre of the recession faded. Among the many well-known footwear, clothing, eyewear and accessory brands, were interesting new comers, like Newton barefoot running shoes, appropriately imported and marketed locally by none other than South Africa‚Äôs barefoot running ace, Zola Budd (Pieterse).
