With three weeks to go until the Patch Sprint, the event has sold out for racers and trekkers. 2018 marks the 8th consecutive year that the event has sold out; six out of those years it has filled up before May.
Registration remains open for volunteers, Kindersprint, Half-Sprint, Relay, as well as event guests. A waiting list has been instituted for the racing and trekking divisions, with the priority being placed on first come, first serve, as well as donor generosity.
"We'd love to take as many as possible," said event co-director Tim Singer, "but we have to limit numbers due to event logistics, environmental impact, and state regulations." So far, 171 people have registered for this year's event, scheduled for May 25-27.
