It’s time, guys. Registration for the second annual Love Run half marathon, set for March 29, 2015, opened this morning at 10 a.m., and today only organizers are giving 150 randomly selected runners half off the $65 registration fee.
All you have to do is head over here to sign up for the race. Throughout the day, organizers will choose registrants at random to score half off the entry fee. (You’ll sign up at the $65 level, and they’ll refund the winners half of the fee within five days, meaning you’ll only end up paying $32.50 for your bib.)
Twenty-five winners will be selected each hour until all 150 are chosen; you have to enter by 3 p.m. to be included in the drawing, so it’s smart to sign up sooner rather than later. The winners will be announced on the run’s Facebook page at the top of each hour, so check there to see if you’re among the winners. Check out all the rules for the promotion.
And if you need more incentive to register today, there’s this: After midnight tonight, the fee jumps to $72.
If you’re unfamiliar with the race, here’s what you need to know. The 2015 race will be the second run for the Love Run, which was insanely popular this year, despite the fact that it poured on race day; the debut race brought 10,000 runners to Philly, and organizers expect this year’s race to sell out. The course starts and ends at the Art Museum, and takes you through Center City before shooting runners out MLK Drive and into West Fairmount Park. There’s a festival at the end of the race, where there will be entertainment, “Philly” food (think soft pretzels and Tastykakes) and, this year, a beer garden, where runners are entitled to a free beer. Swag includes a technical hoodie, pint glass and finisher’s medal.
Head over here to get your registration on.
