Do you register early for races, or wait until closer to the event date to make a move? Today, let’s talk about the reasons you should register early, especially for events like Best Damn Race.
There are several schools of thought about when to register for races. Some people take their time, preferring to see what life brings. They want to make sure their schedules allow for the event, and even keep an eye out for potential injuries that might sideline them.
Me? I take the proactive route. When I see a races I want to run, especially popular ones like Best Damn Race, my next stop is my wallet. Call it FOMO if you must, but there are plenty of great reasons to register early!
The earlier you register for a race, the lower that entry fee will be. Early bird pricing for races can be reasonable, but with Best Damn Race, they are crazy low. Rather than actual date cutoffs for price increases, BDR raises prices in increments of registrations. Check out pricing for the upcoming Safety Harbor race:
Spots are filling up, but are still super reasonable, and you can still snag a half marathon space in Safety Harbor for just $70! (even less if you use code RUNSWITHPUGS for a 10% savings).
Savannah’s Half Marathon is $60 and the 5K is $25! In New Orleans, you can run the BDR Half for just $65! Orlando’s race has been selling fast so prices are just slightly higher, so you don’t want to miss out!
You read that correctly: registering early for Best Damn Race events helps alleviate stress. These races absolutely sell out and waiting means worrying if you’ll be able to snag a spot. No one needs to be anxious about missing out on fabulous running moments like this, so get your registration done as soon as possible!
Now that you’ve paid for your race and put it on the calendar, you have an established goal. Training is just little bit easier when you have a target in sight. The longer you wait to sign up for a race, the greater the tendency to let other plans get in the way. Early registration keeps you on track and your eye on the prize.
Some races offer bonus amenities to early registrants, and Best Damn Race happens to be one of them. This year, in addition to the best damn shirts and best damn medals around, each market is offering custom socks to select quantities of pre-registered runners. By getting in on the action sooner, you actually get even more for your money, by guaranteeing extra goodies. Early registration clearly equals “wise financial decisions.”
