>Racing>NYC Marathon Runner Tracking
I was hoping to ask all you NYC Marathoners to put up your bib # so we could track you on race day.
however, they are charging $2.99 to track runners? Does any other race do this? Seems like they sure to make a ton of bank on this race.
Sorry - but I'll pass...
Anyway - I'll be watching and cheering you on! Can't wait to read race reports...
Go get yours!

Yeah, that blows. However, you can track people via the web:
On race day, domestic and international spectators will be able to track up to five runners simultaneously on the web. No pre-registration is required, and the service is free. Available on race morning..

Thanks for the encouragement!
I plan on posting my finish time as soon as I finish with race report to follow soon after. But, if anyone wants to track me, feel free to send me a PM. I'll probably try to convince you to give me the $3 instead so I can apply that towards my post-race champagne fund, though.

NYRR charges for EVERYTHING these days. Entering the lotto for the London Marathon = Free. Not NYC.
Soon they'll charge you to view their website. Eventually they want 25 cents every time you say NYC Marathon. That will quickly go up to a dollar, and ten years from now, it'll be a grand, just like the race will be.
Crazy. And I get almost DAILY emails from them asking for money for this or that run-charity. Seriously, Fred Lebow is rolling in his grave.
Annnnnnyway, aside from that rant, I'm bib 583. I don't want anyone to pay to track me, but if you can do it free on the website, feel free. Just don't belittle me if I fall apart!!
HTFU? Why not!

Yup - they got my $$ for signing up for the lotto.
I just want to do the race once to do it. One and done. Way too expensive...
Anyhow - you guys will be awesome. Can't wait to hear race reports!
I've got Philly in 3 weeks - so your excitement is contagious!!
