Brooklyn Half Nearing Capacity?

Now this is strange. On the NYRR Facebook page, is the following statement:

"NYRR Half-Marathon Grand Prix Presented by Continental Airlines: Brooklyn registration is nearing capacity. "

No mention of this on the main NYRR page. And in fact, I think I may have missed something earlier - that it seems that *all* NYRR races may be subject to the cap, and not just the ones in Central Park. And so a snide comment made previously about a programmers error in having all the races with a "C" - not correct. (Here's an old NYT story which talks about the caps just involving Central Park - and the phrase "most races will be capped at 5,000")

As we've seen, those caps are varying all over the place.

The discussion groups are filled with comments pro- and con- about the caps, wave starts, etc. Obviously still a work in progress.
