NEW YORK (31-Dec) -- Time is running out for runners to enter the lottery for starting places in the 2010 NYC Half-Marathon, the New York Road Runners reported today. The race is scheduled for Sunday, March 21.

"The lottery application will be closing for the NYC Half-Marathon on Tuesday, January 5, at 11:59 p.m.," explained Megan Chisholm of the New York Road Runners in an e-mail message.

This will be the fifth edition of the NYC Half-Marathon, but the first to take place in the Spring. The previous four editions were held in July and August. Previous winners include Haile Gebrselassie, Paula Radcliffe and Catherine Ndereba, and over 40,000 runners have completed the course from Central Park to Battery Park.

Complete information on the race, including how to apply for the lottery, is available at this link: NYRR.org.
