What About The Publix Georgia Marathon?


Many of you have just finished a full marathon, while others of you are merely a week or two a way from your 26.2 mile journey.  For some of you this will be just another marathon, but to many others it was or will be the first after a long yet exciting journey. If you are like many of the others who have made their way to the only finish line with ancient Greek roots, it will only be the first of many more to come.

Do you need a discount or a free entry to fit it into your budget?

There are still many more that have not yet decided to make that commitment, and yet they are reading this and wondering – can I do a marathon, should I do a marathon?  The best advice I can give you is to find a friend who has run through multiple pair of shoes so they would have the privilege of calling themselves a marathoner and then make your way over to the Publix Georgia Marathon Registration, as I am sure you will be needing it.

One of the first questions I was asked when I crossed the finish line of my first marathon was if I planned on doing any more, to which I immediately answered – Absolutely!  If you have completed a marathon you know exactly what I am talking about, and if you have finished a half marathon you know the question is not much different for you – you have run a half marathon, are you planning on running a full?

PublixRegardless of whether you have just finished your 100th, your first, or are yet to run a marathon the Publix Georgia Marathon is within your reach.  With nearly 5 months of training time available it will give you plenty of time to train even if you need some time off to rest from your most recent adventure.

The Publix Georgia Marathon was recently awarded the 2012 Southern Region Marathon Championship by RRCA.  This will no doubt draw an elite group of runners with names which will be easy to recognize.

If you have not yet registered and already have Sunday March 18th blocked off on your calendar you will want to head over and register in the next couple days before the price increase on November 3rd.  When you stop by to register at the Registration Page make sure to use the exclusive discount code: 262QUEST to get $10 off when checking out.
