Classes resume Tuesday after West Liberty-Salem HS shooting

Air Force Marathon sells out


The Air Force Marathon has sold out, organizers announced Thursday.

The popular series of races that attract 15,000 people around the world to Wright-Patterson and the streets of downtown Fairborn was filled July 18, according to Ted Theopolos, a marathon spokesman.

Participation in the 26.2-mile marathon this time lagged behind last year when the marathon sold out in June 2013, according to Theopolos.

But the other races - a 13.1 mile half marathon, a 10K and a 5K - sold out this year earlier than they have in past years, he said.

Runners may transfer their bibs to other runners through July 31, organizers said.

“The transfer program is the only official way for runners to give their bib to another runner,” race director Rob Aguiar said in a statement.

For a fee, participants may transfer the bib by registering on the Air Force Marathon website at www.usafmarathon.com, to receive a special code. The code allows a non-registered runner to register under that person’s bib, race organizers said.

The full and half marathons and 10K race is set for Sept. 20 at Wright-Patterson. The 5K race is set for Sept. 19 at Wright State University’s Nutter Center.
