The 5th annual Platte Valley Companies Monument Marathon already has a record number of entries and the race is still three weekends away.
WNCC Foundation Director and event chair Jennifer Rogers says 375 half marathon and marathon runners have already entered, but another 100 people have also registered to run the new 5K course. Last year there were 425 runners without the 5K course
Rogers also reminds entrants today(Wednesday) is the final day to get a reduced price for registering. She encourages runners to log on to monumentmarathon.com, register and enter the promo code “bestNE” to get an even better registration fee.
Volunteers can also register on-line and need to attend one of the nine training sessions scheduled September 12th through the 14th.
