"Way Too Cool" Fills Fast

Registration for the Way Too Cool 50k stayed true to form and filled very quickly this weekend: “something less than 10 minutes” said race director Greg Soderlund. He’s still waiting to get the exact time from active.com; though, one post on the Yahoo message board for the event said it'd filled a few minutes after registration opened. Last year’s race reached capacity in just 7 minutes. Taking place in Cool, Ca (not far from Sacramento), the race is run on part of the Western States 100 trails. Course records are held by Uli Steidl (3:18:17) and Ann Trason (3:59:32). Previous post (link).

Postscript: Official fill time: 11:18. Slower than last year but very fast by any standard.
