Don’t Forget: Veteran Runners Can Still Get Guaranteed Entry for the 2013 Broad Street Run

If you didn’t make it through the lottery and have run 10 or more Broad Streets, there’s still a bib with your name on it.

I’ve yet to hear from a single person who was rejected from the Broad Street Run’s first-ever registration lottery, but if you were and you’re a veteran Broad Streeter, you can still get in the race.

Veteran runners—defined as those who’ve run at least 10 Broad Street Runs, either consecutively or not—who didn’t make it through the lottery, may apply for a guaranteed slot by March 1st. You can check your name against the race’s results database to see if you qualify. (Search for your name, then, if your name appears as a hyperlink, click it to see all the years you’ve run.) If you’re in the database under two different names—say, because you got married in the last decade—you can email to request an update. That’s also the address where you should send requests for veteran bibs if you qualify.
