Race Fees Going Up

April 1 is the days when a lot of spring and fall races have fee hikes. That makes today to be the last day before these fees go up. Most fees will face a $10-20 increase, so it is a good thing to make up your mind today!

Here are some of the notable fee increases for races:

So, are one of these races on your list? If so, get registered soon and then book those travel plans! One of the notable races above is the Grandma’s Marathon. It is a classic, beautiful race and one of the largest Saturday marathons. It normally fills quickly so get in now!

  • Hi Charles,
    Have you participated in either the Lake Placid or Buffalo marathon? If yes, was the course scenic.

    • I have not, but I have friends who have done them. This year, Buffalo has a new course which they promise to be scenic and fast. Lake Placid also scenic, but it is a double loop course (for the marathon).

  • Grandma’s was my first full marathon, and I agree that it’s great! Not only that, but it’s FLAT and has great community support. It was drizzly, foggy, and cold (mid 40s) but there were still a lot of spectators (even for slower runners like me).
