Denver, Colo.

The annual Colfax Marathon, offering 7 races – including both a full and half marathon, the Urban 10-miler, a relay and a 5K - runs through Denver’s great neighborhoods and by the Mile High City’s iconic landmarks. Leading up to the start of Sunday’s marathon, registrants, families and friends can visit the Kaiser Health and Fitness Expo on the Club level at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Friday, May 16 and Saturday May 17. Featuring nearly 80 vendors of running, health and fitness products and services, the Expo attracts over 20,000 visitors. Pakems will be participating in the Kaiser Health and Fitness Expo as a new product exhibitor this year.

Health and Fitness Expo attendees will be able to find Pakems on the East C-Level suites area at Sports Authority Field, on Friday, May 16 and Saturday, May 17. The popular family-friendly Expo offers the newest running gear and accessories, including Pakems, as well as information about the latest developments in endurance sports, fitness, and nutrition. Pakems will be selling their lightweight, packable shoes during the Expo, but it’s first-come, first-served, so visit their exhibitor booth sooner rather than later! They will also be hosting various raffle and giveaway opportunities for attendees to win their very own pair of Pakems.

Pakems’ lightweight, compressible design has allowed the brand to quickly become the “go-to” shoe for before and after sport comfort. High-top and low-top styles may be worn around a campsite or after a long run, cycling, hikes, skiing, or rafting. These smart, comfortable shoes are made from a soft, water-resistant rip-stop fabric that compacts nearly flat. Pakems have an insulated, DWR-coated upper, an EVA midsole, a durable rubber outsole and a simple, single-pull lacing system. Extremely light and packable, Pakems fit readily into almost any bag or their accompanying matching tote bag so you can take them virtually everywhere. Pakems founder, Julie Adams, refers to her innovative shoes as the ultimate active-lifestyle “flip-flop” suitable for year-round adventure sports.

According to the marathon’s race director, Andrea Dowdy, “this year’s Colfax Marathon Health and Fitness Expo will feature Colorado based companies with fun and unique products perfect for runners. New companies at the Expo include Pakems, which offer runners a great “post-running” slip on shoe that’s packable, stylish, and comfy to wear after a long run.”
