FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Air Force Marathon Registration to Open with One-day Only Special Price
WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – Registration for the Air Force
Marathon will open Jan. 1, 2012 at midnight with a special one-day only
For Jan. 1 only, the full marathon is $75; half marathon is $60; 10K is $35
and the 5K is $20.
"We've offered special pricing on January 1st for the last few years and it
has helped get our registration off the starting blocks quickly," said
Molly Louden, Marathon director. "I think our incredibly fast sellout last
year will only help speed it along. People know they can't wait too late
if they want a spot."
Prices for the full and half go up $10 on Jan. 2, while the two shorter
distances go up $5. Prices will rise again on April 2 and June 2 – if
spots are still available at all by that time.
Although an additional 1,500 spots were added bringing the potential 2012
field to 15,000 runners, race officials fully expect to sell out based on
the rate of recent growth.
"We are encouraging everyone to beat the rush and register early. It is
the only sure way to guarantee a spot," Ms. Louden said.
