2011 NYC Half marathon

Registration is now open for NYC’s half marathon in spring 2011. A friend who ran this year said it was fantastic. Because there are always more applicants than vacancies, there’s a late November lottery for runners.

Qualifying time for women 18-39 is 1:37:00 and men is 1:23:00. I’ve never ran a half so I don’t have any times, much less a 1:23. Qualifying marathon times, by the way are 3:23:00 and 2:55:00 for women and men respectively.

I prefer non-city races, but I get why so many people love this race.
