5,000 slots filled in three hours?

Fredericksburg’s inaugural Marine Corps Historic Half marathon may still be more than six months away, but you’ll need to get yourself to a speedy Internet connection next Thursday if you want to run it.

So for those of you who are already eyeing training plans, the signups start at noon eastern time on Nov. 1. Click here for the event registration site.
