WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AFNS) — Registration for the 2013 Air Force Marathon will open Jan. 1, 2013, with special New Year’s resolution discounts.
The full and half marathons will be discounted by $10 Jan. 1. The 10K and 5K races will be discounted by $5.

“We encourage all participants to register as early as possible,” said race director Robert Aguiar. “Not only are the prices lower the earlier you register, but we sell out very quickly.”

The Air Force Marathon sold out in record time in 2012 and organizers anticipate selling out even faster this year. Officials will not be increasing the number of runners this year, capping the participants at 15,000.

“We sold out on May 19 in 2012,” Aguiar said , “And we are very excited to debut our course changes in 2013. We believe runners will really like the changes.”

The featured aircraft in 2013 is the C-130J Super Hercules, a military transport plane that has been used in military, civilian and humanitarian aid operations.
The Hercules family is the longest continuous production run of any military aircraft in history.
