Green Bay, WI (February 11, 2013) – Registration for the Cellcom Green Bay Half Marathon is officially closed. As of 5:10 p.m. on Feb. 11, the half marathon reached its capacity.
“It’s always exciting to sell out so far in advance of race weekend,” said Sean Ryan, race director for the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon. “This is great news for us and even better news for our charity partners.”
A limited number of spots remain for the half marathon dedicated solely to fundraisers in the Run for a Reason program. These runners raise $300 that goes directly to the marathon charity partners – Junior Achievement, Unity and Big Brothers Big Sisters. In exchange, each fundraiser receives a free entry into the marathon or half marathon. Runners can sign up for the Run for a Reason program on the marathon website homepage.
The full marathon, which is capped at 2,500 participants, is at 45 percent capacity. The marathon relay, which allows up to five people to split the marathon into separate legs, is at 58 percent of its 200 team capacity.
The 14th annual Cellcom Green Bay Marathon will take place on May 17-19, 2013. Over the past 13 years, the race has generated over $674,000 in proceeds for local charities. For more information visit www.cellcomgreenbaymarathon.com.
