Wait List Information

The wait list is organized based on the date and time you completed your registration for the list on the website. That is how the requests are ranked. We wish we could give some definitive number we will take, but we do not know how many until we start receiving withdrawals.

Once we start receiving withdrawals, we will replace those withdrawals with the next person on the wait list. We will begin doing this on April 1st. Our registrar, Matt Smith, will contact you to notify you have been selected and if still interested in running, will give you instructions on what to do about payment, etc.

We will do this up to June 26th.
Special Note: We will not accept or arrange any transfers, substitutions, replacements etc of any kind from a runner who is withdrawing.

Please note that the invitation to enter the race if you get one is only for you and either Matt Smith or John Weaver will contact you.

Any questions contact John Weaver at

Note: To make sure we get all wait list entries information, we will send this information sheet 3 more times between April 1st and June 1st.
