From the Race Director

Whoa! So I hear everyone is itching to register for The Birdtown Half Marathon for 2015. Well, registration is set to open on January 1, 2015 at 7am CST!
We were very fortunate to fill the race up last year and hopefully we can do it again. The half marathon will be capped at 250, the 8K at 200 and the 4K at 200. The Lil' Birdie Fun Run is unlimited. Let's get those kids active and running!

We are designing a new website but will use this one until it's ready to go. Thank you for your patience!

Some main points to think about:
- The routes will be similar but changing slightly based on construction and feedback from the police and city. The only areas that are changing are near the north side of Crstal Lake and the Lake Drive/France area. Your safety is our first priority! Look for updated routes around February/March.
- Train, train and more training. Staying consistent is one of the best things you can do to accomplish the 4K, 8K and half marathon distances.
- We are planning on providing a pasta feed again this year hosted by Nonna Rosa's in downtown Robbinsdale. You can purchase your tickets while registering. It's so good! Thank you Nonna Rosa's!
- The Flock is in year two. We will have more information on the Flock on our new website.

Respectfully yours,
