Runners - the National Marathon is coming up

Being that I am an avid runner, competing for the past five years, I was interested in participating in the Wirefly National Marathon and I thought you guys might be interested in hearing about it as well. You might be wondering how fast it fills up, so you know how much time you have left. Well the 2007 field cap is 5000 entrants and being that it's only the second year event it is hard to judge the pace, it's better to just sign up quickly to guarantee your spot. To qualify for the marathon, you could use an alternative race but it must be 10k or longer. Some of you may be wondered about if you can or cannot switch between the half marathon and the full marathon. The answer to this is yes. The staff can switch the contestants until midnight on March 18, 2007. The only charge will be the difference in the entry fee, which is twenty dollars, plus a small processing fee. THere is no "difference of fee" refund for the entrants switching down from the full marathon down to the half marathon. You are free to pick up your packet at the DC Armory which will serve as the race expo and the packet pick up on Friday, March 23rd from 11AM until 9PM. The DC Armory address is 2001 East Capitol Street. SE Washington, DC 20003. If you will be unable to pick up your number, it is possible for someone else to pick up your number. For security reasons, though, the proxy must bring a photo copy of the registrant's driver license or some other type of valid photo identification to the packet pick up location that was listed before. The proxy will also be asked to sign the photo copy. If you are wondering about rewards, there will be a finisher model for both the full marathon and the half marathon finishers.
