HOLY MOLEY! NYC MARATHON ENTRY FEE AT $255!

The NYC Marathon, one of the largest in the world with a field of about 45,000, has announced that it is raising its entry fee $60, to $255, for U.S. residents and $63, to $347, for international runners.
Race organizers justified the increased price as being necessary to cover increased costs, noting in particular that the City Of New York will no longer be providing police for the race; instead, the cost of having police on the course will have to be covered by the race organizers, the New York City Road Runners Club.
Despite the price increase, it’s likely that the race will still sell out, as worldwide demand for an entry number has been so high in recent years.  Still, expect many runners to opt for other, cheaper races this coming year, especially those closer to NYC in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.
