Good morning SLO Marathon Participants:
To help ensure the safety and provide the best possible race experience for all of our athletes, we have decide to cap the number of participants in the four weekend races as of today. Our marathon will sell out at 1,200 athletes, our Half Marathon at 4,000, our 5k at 1,200 athletes (offering a competitive and non-competive start time) and the children's fun run at 100.
The Full and Half Marathon are on closed roads throughout San Luis Obispo and the Edna Valley and the 5K and Children's Fun Run are at the Madonna Meadows at the Madonna Inn. Our race production team has great respect for both our community and our athletes and feels strongly that by controlling the number of race participants allowed on our course, it allows us to not only meet but exceed the superior level of USA Track & Field Sanctioning and Boston Qualifier race opportunities we offer.
Please spread the word and if you have friends or family member, be sure that they register soon. The price of registration will go up Feb. 1 and the races will sell out.
We greatly appreciate your understanding. Our entire SLO Marathon Team and myself are working hard to continue the controlled growth and first class development of the California Central Coast's premier destination marathon weekend.
Samantha Pruitt, Race Director
