Couldn’t Register For Broad Street? Try These Races Instead!

So Broad Street went from selling out in over 2 months, to 5 days to under 5 hrs.  Wow.  People had a heck of a time trying to register and frustrations were running high (as to be expected).  Messages are going up on the IBX Broad Street Run Facebook page of frustration or trying to get in .  So to save you time (and sanity), here’s a list of other races to consider

  1. The Long Branch Half Marathon (NJ)- Takes place on May 6, 2012 and you have 3.1 mi more on us Broad Streeters
  2. The Ocean Drive Marathon/Half Marathon/ 10 Miler- Takes place March 25th (5 weeks before Broad Street)- something I considered, but have visitors that weekend!
  3. Asbury Half Marathon (NJ)- On April 25th; they have a 1/2 and a relay full marathon
  4. Penn Relays 20K (PA)- Takes place on April 22 and is one of the hidden distance races philly has to offer (and the oldest!)
  5. Broad Street RERun (PA)- May 12, take out your frustration of the Broad Street Run by running the ReRun and running in something benefiting hemophilia
  6. The Oddyessy Half Marathon- One of Philly’s newer half marathons is run May 26th, 2012.  Do something workout related on Memorial Day Weekend!
  7. The Flying Pig Marathon/ Half Marathon (Cincinnati, OH)- for all you Ohioans, run the pig! Takes place on May 6th, 2012
  8. The Capital City Half Marathon (Columbus, OH)- Still open spots for the May 5th race (you’ll see me there!)
  9. The Kentucky Derby Mini Marathon (KY)- go run 13.1 miles on April 28th and then say hey to some horses the next day

These are only suggestions, but hopefully useful!
