Check the Fine Print: NYC in 2010

The application for the New York Marathon in 2010 goes live on Nov. 2, one day after this year's race.

From the Web site:

"By adding 12 weeks to the training schedule, NYRR hopes to attract runners from a wider spectrum of ability, from experienced runners to novices -- even people who have never run a step."

What's not said: Applying to the race doesn't mean you get *into* the race. 2010 standards haven't been published, but please check the application when it is posted. If you're banking on getting into the NYC Marathon via lottery, there's no reason to apply until the deadline -- based on last year's rules (so you can enjoy the use of your money before then).
