With over three weeks to go until the Patch Sprint, the event has sold out for racers and trekkers. 2015 marks the fifth consecutive year tat the event has sold out, four out of those years it has filled up before May.
Registration remains open for volunteers, Kindersprinters and chaperones, 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 both event logistics, and environmental impact." So far, 170 people have registered for this year's event, scheduled for May 22-24.
