We’ll Get You to the Starting Line
Registering for an endurance event can be like back-to-school shopping. You got to be quick lest you find yourself as the only one without the latest Hello Kitty Trapper Keeper. But fortunately unlike shopping, there are some ways to guarantee you entry into the hottest races in the country.
Last month the Marine Corps Marathon sold out all their available public entries in a record setting 2hours, 27 minutes. That’s faster than you could complete that actual event running a consistent six minute mile. Don’t fret. There are other ways to register for that coveted event you have been training so hard for.
There are several ways to get your name on the list after registration is closed – donations, veteran status, lottery spots. These options vary depending on the event you are trying to register for so be sure to research your event to see what options it offers.
Or - and this is the option we hope you choose - you can join Team Healthier Generation and gain entry into one of those prized events. Team Healthier Generation is our fundraising team that uses endurance events as an active way to help people reach their personal fitness goals while giving them the tools to play an integral part in the grassroots awareness campaign to support childhood health.
Currently Team Healthier Generation has team slots for the Marine Corps Marathon, ING New York City Marathon, and Bank of America Chicago Marathon. If you are looking to register for one of these closed events, consider Team Healthier Generation and join the movement.
The whole late entry thing is great but the team experience is what really makes Team Healthier Generation so special. Yes, you get tailored training programs and coaching; yes, you get athletic swag when you reach your fundraising goals, but really, it’s about the community of athletes in training you get to be a part of and the change you make for the next generation.
