Signing Up for 2010 Marathons

This may seem a little early in the season to be thinking about, but there have been a number of reports of marathons planning to filling up early because of cutting back on spots based on last year’s increased attendance. There are also early marathons (such as Grandma’s in Duluth in June) as well as lottery marathons (New York City marathon’s lottery cut-off in March) that will close before people start putting their outdoor running shoes on again in the spring. Little Rock has only 200 spots still open and Napa Valley 300 spots. So if you haven't registered yet, it's time to do it.

Since this is Friday, and you’re just catching up with your newspapers and blogs, here are the links for either looking at, or entering into some top marathons around the country: (If you are looking at setting a Personal Record for your marathon, I have listed the Top Five Marathons listed by Marathon Guide as the fastest finishing times for all marathons with an asterisk *)
