LL Bean 4th of July 10k LogoRegistration is going quick for the L.L. Bean 10k. When registration opened on Tuesday, it only took until noon before the last pair of free shoes was taken.

As of this morning, a scant 48 hours later, there have been over 700 registrations which means that the free shirts are also gone now.

If you are interested in running, there are less than 300 online registrations remaining.

Once the race has 1000 registered runners, there will no longer be any pre-registration available, although if you get to the race early enough there will be an additional 200 spots available for race-day registration.

So here’s a big congratulations to the L.L. Bean race directors for getting so many race registrations this fast! I wonder whether they’ll get all 1000 registrations before the weekend?
