Big Island International Marathon SOLD OUT!

BIIM Scheduled for March 20, 2011

Marathon and Half-Marathon is SOLD OUT!

The Big Island International Marathon scheduled for March 20, 2011 has sold out of all available slots in both the full and half marathons.

No waiting list will be made and runners are advised that they will not be able to switch or transfer their slots in this race.  If an injury does occur you may request to be switched to the 5K race only.

The 5K run/walk still has a number of slots available and that race will be closed once it has hit capacity. (The 5K sold out on March 6 and anyone mailing in their application after that date will have it returned)

For those in the full marathon who decide on race day to run only the half marathon they will be disqualified and not given a finishers tee shirt or medal.

Tee shirts are for finishers only and failure to finish the race that you signed up for will prevent you from receiving any recognition.

Bandits (those without official running numbers) are prohibited from participation and aid stations will not provide any water or Gatorade.  Police have been notified to remove runners who do not have a running number pinned to the front of their shirts or shorts.

Anyone mailing in an application for either of these races, postmarked after Jan 3, 2011, will have their checks returned.

These rules are established to be fair and equitable to everyone involved. No exceptions will be made.
