USAF Marathon Sept. 17


Registration entry deadline is Sept. 2, 2005. Entries postmarked or hand delivered after Sept. 2 will not be accepted and/or will be returned unopened. NO EXCEPTIONS. The mailing address is:

USAF Marathon
5215 Thurlow Street
Wright Patterson AFB OH 45433

All registered runners receive a T-shirt and patch. All runners who finish also receive a medallion.

After the race, shirts and patches will be mailed as a courtesy to our registered runners who could not attend the race only if they provide a 9"x11", self-addressed, padded envelope with $3.95 postage affixed.

Timing Chips:

We will again be using computerized timing chips to compile finish times. Each runner will receive a computer chip at package pickup. All runners must wear the computer chip on their shoe in order to be timed! No chip, no time! Individuals who have their own timing chip may use them. Please provide chip number on the registration form. This system will allow the Marathon Committee to use your net running time (the actual time from start line to finish line) as your finishing time. Note that, if you cross the finish line at the same time as someone else, you do not necessarily have the same time as that person. It also depends on when you crossed the mat at the start of the race!

Gourmet Pasta Dinner:

Friday night, Sept. 16 from 6-9 p.m., we will feature a gourmet pasta dinner at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Tickets may be purchased on your entry form for $12 per adult, $6 per child ages 6-12, and children 5 and under eat free.

This year's gourmet pasta dinner will again be a buffet style with only 800 tickets being sold.

If space is available, dinner tickets CAN be purchased at the door for $14 per adult, $7 per child ages 6-12, and children 5 and under eat free.

Relay Running Teams:

The number of Relay teams will be limited to 250. Priority will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

All team members must complete a registration form. All completed forms must be mailed as a package (same envelope) with total team payment. No team changes will be made after August 31, 2005.
