Air Force Marathon breaks registration record Jan. 1

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AFNS) -- The Air Force Marathon broke another record for the fourth year in a row. Nearly 6,000 runners registered Jan. 1 -- 1,000 more than the previous year. 

"I was optimistic about registration numbers on opening day," said Rob Aguiar, the race director. "But I certainly never expected so many to register on Jan. 1."

The 10K is already more than 50 percent full and Aguiar said it's always the first race to sell out. The next price increase is set for April 2, but he warns participants that there may not be spots left by that time. 

"We encourage all participants to register as early as possible," he said. "Not only are the prices lower the earlier you register, but we sell out very quickly."

The Air Force Marathon sold out in record time in 2013 and organizers anticipate selling out even faster this year. Officials will not be increasing the number of runners this year, capping the participants at 15,000. 

The Air Force Marathon will also feature Boston Marathon Director Dave McGillivray as a special guest. McGillivray will speak at the Sports & Fitness Expo, the Breakfast of Champions and Gourmet Pasta Dinner. Tickets for the breakfast or dinner can be purchased at www.usafmarathon.com.

The featured aircraft for 2014 has not been determined yet, but will be announced once it has been decided.
