Just 30 days away now, this inaugural race from Fayetteville to Ft. Bragg in beautiful North Carolina will be here before we know it. I sincerely hope that this event will get great support by the local community, and runners alike. I’m not sure what the runner caps are for all three events, but I’m guessing there will be a bunch of runners out there.
They recently added a 5k to this event, so that race, coupled with the Half and Full Marathon, should attract runners of all types. May 4th is race day, so your chance to get some training time in is slipping away. You can still register for the event online. Currently the price of the Full Marathon is $90, and $75 for the Half Marathon. The 5k is available now for $25.
Generation UCan is the official race nutrition, and will be bringing Meb Keflezighi along for runner meet and greets. Meb won the New York City Marathon in 2009, with a time of 2:09:15.
Ft. Bragg is the largest United States Army installation, and civilian runners get to run in and finish on the base! That’s something that the Marine Corps Marathon cannot claim, as none of that course is run on base. This is truly a unique opportunity, and one I am looking forward to.
All American Marathon will be my 13th marathon. Will I get to see any of you there?
