I got an email today that puzzled and excited me. It came from the NYRR (New York Road Runners) group, the organization that runs the New York City Marathon. For several years, I have applied to get into the lottery. If you don’t know, there are way more people applying to run than they can allow to participate so they accept entries and a select few (and by few I mean 50,000) who get to run on race day. I’ve been applying since maybe 2008, most years not seriously because I’ve never completed training for it, but if I did get accepted, I would run or walk or hop or crawl or whatever it took to get to the finish line.
Anyway, today I got an email from NYRR that said there is a class action lawsuit regarding said lottery and that depending on the results, previous lottery entrants might get accepted into the next event and be credited. I don’t know the details but this is exciting.
Has anyone else received a similar email?
