Normally, the only thing harder than finishing the Race to Robie Creek is getting a bib number.
But this season, it was a bit easier for would-be racers to get a number. The 2,100 available entries sold out in 70 minutes, said race organizer Brian Rencher.
"There were far less issues of people filling out the form and getting kicked out," Rencher said. "It's not as fast as I was expecting. I picked two minutes, 45 seconds."
Rencher said the final 50 bibs took a while to sell.
He said runners from 32 U.S. states and Canadian provinces purchased race entries. Registration cost $50.
"It was a little slower than years past, but much, much smoother," Rencher said. "I won't be sitting behind my computer until 7 tonight answering nasty messages."
If you don't get registered today, you can enter a second-chance drawing for 200 additional entries. The second-chance drawing closes on Feb. 23 at 5 p.m.
And if you still don't have one, the Idaho Statesman will offer a final chance for you to get a bid beginning Monday, Feb. 24.
"Even if you dont have luck via the second chance, dont give up," Rencher said. "Keep training a number will become available."
