CIM Filling Up Early!

Don't procrastinate!

Don’t procrastinate!

The trend for marathons these days is to fill up and fill up early.

It seems that the local, popular California International Marathon is no different.

The race filled up last year by August 22nd, and race management is reporting fewer than 1,000 of the total 8,000 entries remain available.

I guarantee you it will fill to capacity, so if you are planning to run the race–register soon.

This is a far cry from the good old days when we could sign up for the race at the expo!

If you are a faster runner (approximately able to meet Boston qualifying standards), there will be an additional window for registration between October 1st and October 15th for runners who can meet the Guaranteed Entry Standards.


Slackers Rejoice: World Masters Track & Field Champs has a few Late Entries!

May 02, 2011 By: John Blue Category: Masters Runners

If, perhaps, you forgot to register for the World Masters Track and Field Championships and are still interested (and have a few bucks lying around), you may be in luck!

The Sacramento Local Organizing Committee is reporting that late entries are being accepted, but not for very long. There is a $50 late penalty until May 6th, when it goes up to $100–until a “a to-be-determined date in mid-May.”

Better hurry up! That registration isn’t going to get filled out by itself.
