    Hi gang, I was at the Expo today. Pick up racing bibs with my friends. I brought the camera and photographed some of the running celebrities like John Stanton, Krista DuChene and cool running vendors. Have fun tomorrow gang :)

    I will be inside Copps at around 7:30 setting up video cameras and am there for the whole day. There should be runners in costume such s the grim reaper, firemen in full gear, zombies (how does a zombie run).

    Spring Valley road will be a good spot but you will have to Park somewhere near the high level bridge as York Blvd will be closed at the 403 ramp and #6 hwy in both directions

    Why the 7 am meet time when the race doesn't start until 9:30 a.m.? Will we all meet at the same place or will we be designated to a specific spot?
