NYC Marathon Deadline

Especially if you've just whet your long-distance appetite with the Brooklyn Half today: please take note. The deadline for lottery applicants for U.S. residents for this year's NYC Marathon is 11:59 p.m. on June 1 (Monday). The drawing is in early June.

The lottery is, well, a crapshoot. For those of you considering New York in 2010, the easiest way to guarantee a spot is to run the nine qualifying races (and the one volunteer commitment). (Unless of course you're really fast or choose one of the charity routes ... or the several other loopholes in place).
