The Wirefly National Marathon

The New Wirefly National Marathon course has been unveiled for the 2nd year of this annual event. Take a look at the Wirefly National Marathon map and notice that it still starts and finishes at RFK stadium, but there are a few tweaks to the course. The Wirefly National Marathon will be USATF certified as a Boston qualifier now this is a big deal.

The marathon is scheduled for Saturday, March 24, 2007 with a 7 A.M. start and registration is now open online. All team pricing is available there for both the half marathon and the full marathon. Registration is simple and easily done online, but make sure you get in before March 18th! Registration closes promptly on that day. Time is running out as this is just under 3 weeks away.

Qualification Requirements:
You must have previously completed:
• a marathon in 5:00 or
• a half-marathon in 2:30 or
• a ten-miler in 1:50 or
• a 10k in 1:05 or
• a 5k in 31 minutes or better (half-marathon only)
Wirefly and The Greater Washington Sports Alliance Foundation is firmly committed to supporting local youth organizations that use sports to build character, encourage physical fitness and enhance education. Members of the 2006 League of Charities include the Special Olympics of D.C., YFCA, the Washington Mystics, Winners Lacrosse, Fort Dupont Ice Arena, and these other beneficiaries . Each organization benefits from a year long effort of fundraising through Sports Alliance events, such as the Wirefly National Marathon and National Half Marathon.

Wirefly is the #1 Cell Phone provider on the internet and has cell phones available for free in many cases with the purchase of a cell phone plan. Every phone ever made is probably on that site so I doubt you will ever have to go anywhere else to compare the deals, or possibly get a better one.
