Broad Street Run Bib Deferral Program Now Open

If you deferred your registration last year, you can get guaranteed entry for the 2013 race—but you have to act fast.

Starting today, Broad Streeters who deferred their race registration last year can bypass the (much malignedlottery and put in for a guaranteed spot in the 2013 race. The deferral program is open through February 11th. Note: You still have to pay the $40 registration fee this year, even if you deferred your entry last year.

Once you enter your information in the registration form, the system checks your name against the database of deferrals. If it can’t find your name, you’ll receive an error message prompting you to email race officials at

If for some reason you are eligible for the deferral program but you miss the boat (tsk tsk), you can enter the lottery with everyone else between February 4th through 15th.
