Talk of a fast-selling race

I had wanted to get into this half-marathon last year - it's appropriately called the "First Half" and it's on February 15th this coming year - but didn't sign up fast enough.

Registration was opening this morning, I got up at 6, open my computer, they were already 49.9% sold!!! (And they did not open at midnight but rather sometime in the early morning.) It is now not even 7 a.m. and it's 59.3% sold out. The race is capped to 2,000 because it goes around Stanley Park in Vancouver and there can only be so many people on that path. They also have a 3-hour cut-off, so basically there can be no recreational walkers. Even then, they sell out really fast.

This should be an interesting event!

I heard the NYC triathlon sold out in 22 min this year! Sheesh!
