Last Chance: Leatherman's Loop Lottery

Would-be Leatherman's Loop runners have until midnight tonight to register for the lottery—and a chance to run the mud-filled race in April.

If you've always thought about running the Leatherman's Loop—the trail race that runs through Ward Pound Ridge Reservation and can include waist-high water to wade through and mud so mucky it sucks shoes off—Monday's your last chance to sign up for the 2013 event.

All runner registration will be via Loop Lottery for the 27th Running of the Leatherman’s Loop on Sunday, April 21. The lottery opened Thursday and closes tonight at midnight. Once it is closed there will be no new lottery entrants accepted. 

To sign up, visit the Leatherman’s Loop website and follow links to the registration site. You'll need to enter your contact information and a credit card number that won't be charged unless you've secured a race bib for the race.

What happens after midnight?

Those who've secured a number—and those who haven't—will be notified via email. Organizers say there are more interested runners than spots, and some will be disappointed.

Thanks Lisa! Just to clarify--lottery drawing will take place next Monday and email notes will go out after then (next tues or wed). Good luck to all entrants!

Thanks! It's a great race and I'm crossing my fingers.

Hoping to run it for the first time this year.
