Fields are nearly full for Roxbury distances races
Published 6:50 pm, Wednesday, October 5, 2011
Registration is still open at www.roxburyraces.net for the Roxbury marathon. The race is limited to 100 runners.
The half-marathon already is full and building a waiting list while the marathon had more than 80 entrants as of Sept. 24.
Only the first 100 runners to register for each of those races would be allowed to run since the host Roxbury road race series can only accommodate that many entrants.
If the 100-runner limit were to be reached for the marathon, a waiting list would be maintained.
Registered runners who later find they are unable to run the race would be asked to notify race management as soon as possible so their places may be taken by other runners.
The signup will remain active until the day before each race.
There will be a $10 entry fee for the half-marathon, slated Nov. 12 at 8:30 a.m. The fee can be paid that morning from 7 to 8:15 a.m.
The marathon will be held Dec. 10 at 8:30 a.m. The $10 fee can be paid that morning from 7 to 8:15 a.m.
Both races will start and finish near Hurlburt Community Park on West Apple Lane.
