BOILERMAKER 2013 (WKTV) - There are many things to see and do at the 2013 Boilermaker Expo, whether you're getting ready to take part in the big race as a participant or from the sidelines as a spectator.

At the Dick's Sporting Goods booth, you'll find a unique way to show your support for runners - a customizable sign.

You just fill in the name of your runner and you're good to go as you cheer them on along the race course.

They also have various types of free swag, including key chains and frisbees. You can also receive free advice on running and footwear.

"If you're new to running, which a lot of people at this race are, they may not know if they need a certain type of shoe and that can help prevent injuries, which is what we're trying to do and try to have fun with the run," said Ryan Price, a representative from Brooks Shoes.
