One of my CSAM teammates that is also doing Big Shoulders next month forwarded me an e-mail from the race director that went out the day before I registered. The gist of it is space is running out! Here’s an excerpt:
BIG SHOULDERS UPDATE
We are getting ever closer to hitting the maximum number of entrants, meaning that registration will close. If you haven’t already registered – don’t delay, do it today. If you have friends who are waiting to see if it fits with their horoscope – the stars say “register.” Go to www.signmeup.com/bigshoulders
And while we’re at it, they covered legal swim suits as well…
Apparently Michael Phelps isn’t the only one thinking about suits this year. We’ve gotten a number of inquiries about what is legal for the race. Bottom line – we follow the USMS/FINA rules regarding suits, so at least for this year, you can wear that super-fast, super-expensive suit for Big Shoulders if it complies with the USMS rules.
So there you have it. If you’re not registered soon you won’t be registered at all!
