Early registrations up 21 percent for San Juan Island Marathon | Running

Early registrations are up 21 percent for the King’s San Juan Island Marathon and Half Marathon.

“Traditionally, most of the registrations come in four weeks prior to the race, with a surge of day-before registrations at the expo,” race co-director Paul Hopkins said. “So, we’re very pleased with these early numbers and hope the trend continues.”

Co-director Clark Gilbert said the course is becoming widely viewed as challenging. The event was featured recently in NW Runner magazine.
