I might do one of the shorter distances, e.g. 5K. When do they usually sell out?

I might come back to Ottawa next year. Tossed up between Ottawa and Toronto GL (haven't done that one yet), with Vancouver as an outside chance.
Keep on rolling, just a mile to go. Keep on rolling my old buddy, you're moving much too slow.

I've got the Ottawa half on my radar screen. I haven't run anything longer than 10K in Ottawa in many years.

Overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of your chance to be extraordinary.

If history repeats itself, the Ottawa Race Weekend, is one of the few races that will allow registration transfers, for a small fee, during a small window, should the situation arises and you are not able to participate, when the event(s) are SOLD OUT ... :wink:

Big window this time around. You can modify or transfer from now until midnight of May 1st, 2013. On each email registration confirmation, there are links at the bottom of the message, right underneath these terms.

Modify your Registration:
You can manage your registration independently and update anything on your original registration (except your name). Additionally, you are now able to change the race you have registered for (subject to availability). If your training is going great you can move to a longer race. If you are injured, you may move to a shorter race. Simply click on the link below and make the necessary changes. Please note that if you move to a more expensive race, you will only be charged the difference in cost from your original registration. If you move to a less expensive race, there is no refund.

Transfer your Registration
We recognize that sometimes you cannot participate in the race after you have registered. You may transfer your registration to another person by clicking on the link below and selecting "Transfer Registration". Enter the name and email of the person you are transferring to and they will receive an email requiring them to enter their information and pay the $15 transfer fee. Once they have completed this step, your registration will be transferred and you will receive an email confirmation. You are able to cancel the transfer at any time providing the new registrant has not yet submitted the transfer form. We do not charge a registration fee to the new registrant and therefore do not refund the original registration fee.

If all that you read is everything you believe then let go, then let go, then let go.

Nothing will change if you never choose.

I think I'm going to wait until after the NWM lottery to decide, but I'll probably just register for the half to grab a spot in case.

Any estimates for the 42K sellout date? Next spring's conference season will take me through southern Quebec and I might be able to escape to Ottawa for a day. (But taking a sledgehammer to my knees would be less likely to injure me than signing up for a race six months ahead of time.)
