Price to run in marathon increases Thursday

If recent history is an indicator for the future, Mill Race Marathon runner registration should take a healthy jump in the next four days. Runner totals made a one-week leap of 500 last year leading into the annual Sept. 1 registration rate increase.

As of this week, the number of runners had increased 142 during the prior week to a total of 2,676. Among races, the biggest year-over-year increase so far is the 5K, which is up 11 percent.

Registration fees for the Sept. 24 Mill Race Marathon running events through Wednesday are as follows:

•$75 for the full marathon

•$60 for the half-marathon

•$25 for the 5K

Prices increase by $15 on Sept. 1. Register at
