Fancy yourself a bit of the sporty type? If you happen to be located on the Gold Coast, there's a pretty good chance you are. With its friendly weather and its miles of beaches, the city is perfect for those who like to kick off their day with a quiet, meditative jog, or have a thorough full-body workout with a relaxing swim.
If this is starting to sound like you, then you'll want to read on. It just so happens that those with apartments in Broadbeach and the Gold Coast are going to be treated to a sports extravaganza with the arrival of the 2014 ASICS Sport and Leisure Expo which kicked off today.
The expo will let visitors have a gander at the latest sports equipment, apparel and nutrition, plus health products, running and sporting events and a variety of tourist, leisure and adventure activities.
It's conveniently held in the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, right next to the registration and kit collection centre of the Gold Coast Airport Marathon. This means you can register for the marathon, then head on over and get yourself prepared with the best gear and nutritional products.
The expo is completely free, and lasts until 5 p.m. Saturday 5 July. There's really no excuse to not head on down.
