Waaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!


Dear Runner:

We regret to inform you that your name was not selected in the 2009 St. George Marathon lottery. We randomly selected 7200 runners of the 10,510 registrants from 49 states and 10 countries. We wish that we had the ability to accept all registrants.

We have made available 72 additional spots in the race through our Charity Support Program. If you are interested, please contact the individual charities through our website at www.stgeorgemarathon.com.

Please note we do not keep a waiting list - please, no phone calls.

If you have registered for the St. George Marathon the last two years (2008 and 2009), and have not been selected, you will qualify in 2010 for our "Third Time's a Charm" program. If you choose to register in 2010, you will not have to go through the lottery and will be guaranteed a spot in the race. We hope you will be able to join us for a future marathon.

St. George Marathon Staff

I'm bummed for you. Would you like me to go down and kick the organizers in the shins? Don't they know who you are? Yeesh!

How dare they.

glittersmama said...

It's seeming like most of the people I know did not get in. It blows. I'm sorry.

Jan the crazy lady said...

This sounds suspicious. Who would turn you down? I think money was involved.

LaurieJ said...

So did you check out the charities? What is involved in that?

Motherboard said...

Thats a big bummer, dude.

Karen said...

I'm sooo sorry. My Ultimate Bestie is going to run a marathon in San Fran in September. Do you want me to see what it takes to get registered in that one?

DeNae said...

You can have my slot, Melissa. It's in the "deceased" category, but I can wait another year. I'm sorry you're so bummed, but can I say that picture of the crying girl is freaking cute?? Freaking. Not just regular cute.

Tanja said...

so sorry.

Kami said...

That stinks.

On a lighter note, It was great to meet you tonight. Maybe next time we can sit at the same end. :)

Shawn said...

Oh no! I didn't know that it was a lottery to get in---so sad. Just chow down then!

Loralee and the gang... said...

Dang, that stinks! Well, looks like you WILL be there next year, right? Or is it not til the year after that??
:~D

Omgirl said...

Hey, but good news for 2010, right? And if you keep eating all those Ding Dongs, Doritos, and Milk Duds, you just might need that race. (Whatever. You'll never gain a lb, no matter what you do and I hate you for it.)

Sher said...

That sucks. St. George has the best course in the state, too.
But, you're planning on doing Logan, right?

Let's hook up and do some of the Provo River races this summer. They will help you train.

Are you getting psyched for Ragnar?!!

Sue said...

That totally sucks!!


I'm sorry--I hate it when life isn't fair

Rhonda said...

I say drown your sorrow in a RT ticket out here to NYC!

SO said...

Well poo! I'm sorry :(

tiburon said...

I am so pissed.

For real.

Tink said...

Oh man, that sucks! You are the second person I know who was turned away! Sniff. I think I ate your bucket of ice cream.

So sorry.....after my first Marathon as a witness...(not like I'd EVER be a participant) I sort of understand the importance of getting to run. I found a new admiration for runners...and for the mental and physical strength. I bow to those of you who can push your bodies like that.
