Air Force Marathon registration to open January 1

Runners registered for the 2018 Air Force Marathon who can no longer participate can transfer their registrations to others soon.

Registration for the 2019 Air Force Marathon is set to begin at midnight January 1, 2019. More than 15,000 runners participate in the annual event, which takes place at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Scott Johnson)

WRIGHT PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AFNS) -- Registration for the 23rd Annual Air Force Marathon opens at midnight Jan. 1, 2019.  Runners can register at www.usafmarathon.com by clicking the registration tab.

“We’re excited about offering an almost entirely new race experience that we believe runners will enjoy,” said Brandon Hough, race director .

Registration for the 2019 Air Force Marathon will open with a New Year’s Resolution special that will offer the best prices in a decade.  The prices will be valid through Jan. 3. 

“We received such great feedback from our 2018 runners that we are implementing,” Hough said. “From updated courses to a whole new expo experience, we think runners are going to be noticing a difference.”

After a successful first year, the Fly – Fight – Win Challenge Series will be returning and adding an additional option. Runners can register for either the 5K, 10K or half marathon races similar to last year or the 5K, 10K and Full Marathon races as one event. In completing either challenge, runners will receive an additional, premium medal.
 
Registrants for the challenge must still be able to complete the 10K race in one hour or less (9:41 pace) to be able to make it to the half or full marathon start time. Organizers are also adding a 1K children’s race, The Tailwind Trot, for children 4-12 and their parents scheduled for Friday, Sept. 20 at 6 p.m., just before the 5K event.     

The featured aircraft for 2019 will be the Air Force’s newest tanker, the KC-46 Pegasus.
