If you need to run the Blue Gray Half-Marathon to be eligible for a Grand Prix award, do not wait to the last minute to sign up.
Other race directors around our region have applied for permits, indicating a lower expected number of participants than they actually allowed to register. This has caused issues with their local official and revocation of permits.
Our permit for the Blue Gray Half-Marathon and 5km is for 1000 participants. In recent years, about 900 runners have been registered. If we reach 1000 runners before race day, we will stop taking registrations.
Raising our permit to a higher cap will increase fixed infrastructure costs
