Entries are coming in at a record clip for the 2011 Wharf to Wharf Race. Registration started on April 1 -- and in the first five days some 7,500 runners have already registered. The race is limited to 15,000 registered runners.
The notice went out on April 1 on the Wharf to Wharf Facebook page. Race director Kirby Nicol said this week that the response to the race "is unlike anything I've ever seen. We've got a tiger by the tail."
The Wharf to Wharf is now in its 39th year. It's always run on the fourth Sunday in July -- this year, that's July 24.
But it'll be long sold out by that time. Nicol estimates: "At this rate, our 15,000 runner limited field will be sold out before the end of April. The time to enter is NOW!"
