    Maybe a few extra bucks should be put into the T-shirts that they give to competitors. The ones provided this year were nothing but a waste of money and will probably never be worn by anyone.

    NLAA. I am a long time nlaa member. According to my math, if we had over 500 extra runners this year, that approx 35k extra revenue. Let's drop a few extra bucks in 2013 and get an Olympian from the London Games to come and run the course. Pay him/her to put off a clinic Saturday and race Sunday. Charge 20 bucks to attend the clinic. If we get 400 people then that's 8000 extra dollars to work with. I am sure you could get a big name for 20k?

    Minor detail but shouldn't it read something like 'And part of that plan would include making it more attractive to the competitive runners, who at this point are by far outnumbered by casual or recreation runners.'?

    The race might be growing but certainly not at the exponential rate that the accompanying hype from The Telegram is growing. Usually the only time Robin Short is raving as much as he has been in the past two days is when writing about curling.

      The easiest way to entice elite runners to the Tely is to increase the prize money. They took in approx. $250,000 in registration money and only awarded $3000 in total prize money. Surely they can afford to up the ante a bit to make it more worthwhile for better competition to come here.
