The race deferral period with no questions asked ended on Aug 15th. If you want to defer from now through Oct 10th we require a written medical note from your physician stating you are injured.
The Iron Horse has reached capacity. We do not have a waiting list as we take extra people to allow for no-shows on race morning. We think 1,300 is our course capacity so taking 1,600 entries usually means about 1,300 runners will show up the day of the race. We do not allow selling of bibs this year but we do allow people to defer their entry to 2015 if they furnish a note from their physician stating they are injured. See our FAQ's page for details.
If you paid to have your packet mailed to you we will start the mailing process after Sep 15th. Local packet pick-up info is on our FAQ's page.
We will have a free, informal meet and greet with Jeff Galloway on Sat, Oct 11th at 6pm at the Clarion Hotel in Lexington. Jeff will answer questions, sign autographs, and will briefly address the audience. This meet and greet will last for about an hour or so.
