SLO Life Expo

549_SLO14 copy

After your race is over, when you have completed that 26.2/13.1 mile journey, it’s time to enjoy what we locals call “The SLO Life.” It has all to do with people, places and things that evoke a state of mind. It’s relaxed, there’s no need to rush. You’ve earned this. It’s having a local brewed beer or glass of wine with friends after your race, savoring fantastic gourmet food prepared with fresh local produce, listening to lively music, all while enjoying a beautiful California day. It’s a stroll through a Farmer’s Market, sampling food and appreciating the works of local artisans. It’s a friendly face, a welcoming hospitality and new acquaintances. It’s a vista, wildflowers and a sunset over the majestic San Luis Obispo Morros. It’s all this and so much more… and it all begins when your race ends at the “The SLO Life Expo.”

2016 information will be updated soon. We've provided 2015 information for reference.
