Get set - we are headed to the land of the Cornhuskers! Per our recent survey, sixteen PBers chose the Lincoln marathon (May 5) for our official 2013 spring group trip. For those interested in the San Diego full: racing the Lincoln Half would be excellent training for you.
The Lincoln marathon is more popular then EVER. The race sells out quickly and hotels within walking distance are booked before registration begins. PB has a block of ten rooms at the Townhouse Extended Stay hotel which is a half mile from the start of the race. All other hotels within that distance (Embassy Suites, Holiday Inn and Cornhusker) are already sold out.
Here is what you need to do NOW if you are serious about running Lincoln:
- Register. Dec 8th for the marathon and Dec. 21 for the half. Go to the Lincoln Marathon site. Do not wait! This race sells out faster every year.
- Find a roommate. (Coach Amy needs one!)
- Book your room at Townhouse Extended Stay, Lincoln. We have 6 rooms left (2 beds each) reserved for May 4-5th (3:00 p.m. check-out). Our group rate is $180 per night.You have till Feb 1st to cancel without being charged. E-mail us for details on reserving your room - first come first serve.
