FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Denver Marathon Announces Field Cap of 10,000 Runners
DENVER, Colo. – July 16, 2007 – Organizers of the world-class Denver
Marathon, the largest marathon in the state of Colorado to be held on
October 14, 2007, announced today an athlete field cap of 10,000 runners
for this year's premier event.
With nearly triple the number of runners currently registered for the 2007
Denver Marathon as this time last year as well as the unprecedented success
of the sold out inaugural 2006 Denver Marathon, race organizers determined
that this year's cap was critical to regulate course capacity and uphold
athlete and spectator safety and satisfaction.
"We know how exhilarating it can be for runners when they have the right
support – from supplies to volunteers helping them along the way," said
Anton Villatoro, Executive Director of the Denver Marathon. "With a field
cap, the Denver Marathon can ensure that every runner has an extraordinary
and memorable experience."
With races including the marathon, a half-marathon, four-person marathon
relay and the McDonald's Mile Kids Race, the 2006 Denver Marathon drew more
than 5,000 participants from around the world, as well as over 600
volunteers and an estimated 50,000 spectators who joined together to help
make the inaugural event a success.
Registration fees for the marathon are: Standard Entry (June 1st -- August
31st), $95; Late Entry (September 1st – October 10th), $105. Half marathon
registration fees are: Standard Entry (June 1st -- August 31st), $75; Late
Entry (September 1st—October 10th), $85. Marathon relay registration fees
