Shanghai International Marathon
is on for November but registration will close at 5pm today. The main event will have 8,000 runners, 10,000 for the half-marathon, 7,000 for the 10k, and 10,000 5k. So yeah, it will be huuuge, and there are still spots left for the commitment-phobes. If you want in, head to Shanghai Marathon's official website
and create a profile to begin your registration. Reps there say register ASAP by 4pm today as the site will likely be slowed by heavy traffic. The clock's ticking.
