CIM Entries on "Record Fill" Pace


More than 3,000 have entered as of May 8, which puts the CIM ahead of 2011 May 8 entry numbers by more than 2,000! This trend indicates that the marathon entry cap of 8,000 could be achieved by early August. Register very soon to avoid disappointment, and enter by August 1 (if you dare to wait that long!) to avoid the entry fee increase from $105 to $125.
See how YOU will help US Commemorate 30 Years!

In addition to a high quality, technical fabric t-shirt and a beautiful finisher's medallion, all the 30th Anniversary CIM entrants will receive TWO unique and useful items featuring the CIM's 30th Anniversary art. Watch for details coming in the next SRA/CIM eBlast.
Sneak Peek

30th Anniversary CIM Art
Did you know that the 30th Anniversary color is green? With this in mind, we adapted our very popular 25th Anniversary CIM art for this year's shirts and medallions. The image on the left will be on race shirts (shirt fabric colors to be determined); the image on the right will be used for the large, coaster-style, shiny, black metallic, medallions. Stunning! Watch for a preview of the annual poster art (it will be very different from these) in a future email.
