3/14/2013 - WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio --  If you're planning on running in the Air Force Marathon this September, time is running out to register. Not only does the price increase on April 2, there is a chance the event will sell out by then.

"We traditionally experience a huge surge in registrations prior to a price increase," said Robert Aguiar, Marathon director. "At the pace the race is selling out this year, we fully expect the 10K will be closed out before the April 2 price increase. The other races will be very close to selling out as well. The entire event is already more than 60% full."

Prices for the full and half are currently $90 and $75 respectively, while the 10K and 5K are $40 and $30. All race prices will rise by $5 on April 2. Another price increase is scheduled for June 2 if there are any spots remaining.

All registered runners receive a tech shirt, hat, patch and goodie bag. Everyone who finishes a race also gets a medal that this year features the C-130J Super Hercules. Medals are presented at the finish line by a senior Air Force officer. The race is held at the majestic National Museum of the United States Air Force.

The Air Force Marathon is a Boston Marathon qualifying event and the course goes past a number of historic landmarks including Huffman Prairie where the Wright Brothers perfected manned flight.
