2012 Air Force Marathon setting registration records

88th Air Base Wing Public Affairs Report

1/4/2012 - WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- Nearly 4,200 athletes registered for the 2012 Air Force Marathon on Jan. 1, more than doubling the one-day total from last year.

With 30 percent of slots already taken, another early sellout is predicted.

"We added an additional 1,500 spots to bring the total field to 15,000 this year to give more people the opportunity to enjoy this amazing event," said Molly Louden, marathon director. "But at the rate we are going, it looks like the demand will bring us to another quick sellout."

After the one-day special for Jan. 1, prices for the full and half are now $85 and $70, while the 10K and 5K are $40 and $25. Prices will rise again on April 2 and June 2 -- if spots are still available by that time.
