Apr 25 2013 - Fredericton Marathon Registration Closed
The Fredericton Marathon committee would like to acknowledge the disappointment of those runners and walkers who have missed the cut off for this most successful event to date. As runners ourselves we understand your disappointment. While we tried our best, through many communication channels, to let runners know we did in fact have a cap it's evident that it wasn't possible to reach everyone in time.
The reason for the cap is simply one of numbers. The course is not conducive to an unlimited number of participants and we want to offer a quality event for the number of participants we can accommodate. At 1500, we will still have 300 more runners than last year and congestion is a concern. Once again we regret that we could not accommodate everyone and feel for those who were not able to register before the limit was reached.
There will be no waiting list as it would be impossible to manage.
