Tougher than Boston?

The 6th Annual Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon sold out in less than 4 minutes. Boston, look out. I ran it in 2008. Great race, everyone should have it on their bucket list. If you didn't get in, I'd imagine volunteers are still needed.

Discussion on the Nashville Striders board about registration. I'd rather it remained a small race. I think the current limit is 200 runners. That's part of the appeal of this race, none of the big race logistic problems. Plus, it's so much more. Running in Percy Warner Park in late November is always a good time. Being out on the road with 199 other like minded folks is even better. Then add some food and beer afterwards. Runner nirvana.

I agree with keeping it a small race. I love Monkey, mostly because it's a homecoming...my running pretty much started in that park back when I lived a couple of miles from it. See you in November!
