Hi K.O. Runners,
The most exciting running event in NYC is taking place November 6th. The ING Marathon!! Runners from all around the world will be dashing through the 5 boroughs of our wonderful city, starting off at Fort Wadsworth Staten Island with the first of several bridge runs on the course, the historic Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and ending in Central Park peaking with Falls foliage.
Not registered, but interested in running?
LAST MINUTE SIGNUP- PROMOTIONAL ENTRY WITH "AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY"
Have you been doing a lot of long distance training and thinking... "I feel ready for the ING Marathon, but it is too late for me to register"...?
If you are seriously interested in going and can raise $1500 to support the efforts of the American Cancer Society you may still have a chance!

AUTOMATIC ENTRY VIA OTHER CHARITIES!
There are still may be many charities with automatic entry spots open for the ING Marathon, but you have to act fast!
Note: I will commit to raising $100 for the first 2 J.K.O Runners who register to run in the ING Marathon via the American Cancer Society or other registered ING automatic entry charity to help realize your participation. The J.K.O Runners must be registered members of J.K.O. Running as of September 25th, 2011. You must indicate you are running with the American Cancer Society or other charity in your RSVP and forward details about your fundraising page etc. to me.
In addition, I will post notices about your fundraising efforts on all of J.K.O. Running's team pages.

WANTED! K-NOCK O-UT Runners-Volunteers-Cheerleaders
Please RSVP and indicate in your comments if you are running, volunteering or just coming out to cheer runners on throughout the course! I would love to get as many members of JKO Running out to cheer at various points along the route to support our teammates who are taking on the course to the finish!
Runners, if you can please update your RSVP when you get your bib number so we can look out for you and indicate your flight to see if perhaps you may be able to run with another K.O. runner as well. If you need someone to be at a particular mile stop to help you out (have a banana, a gel, anything, let me know). You do not have be running as a J.K.O Runner to RSVP. J.K.O. Running is more than just a team of women running together, we are here to support each other from all starts and finishes. You can indicate in your RSVP what group you are running with so you can be spotted in the field of runners and identify each other on the run.
Cheerleaders, let's coordinate being at several points along the course.
WANTED A FEW GOOD VOLUNTEERS!
The ING needs YOU! There are still plenty of opportunities to volunteer for the ING Marathon at various points along the route. BROOKLYN! BRONX! MANHATTAN! QUEENS! STATEN ISLAND!
Volunteer support is what makes this event so great! JOIN US!
Volunteers, please note that volunteering for the ING will not qualify as the one volunteer events you must do for entry to the 2012 ING. However, if you have never sported one of those fabu orange and white splash coats, gotten Gatorade drops on your neck & wrists like one of the sweetest perfumes, handed a drink to one of the elite runners and the throngs that come after, you don't know what your are missing. It is a must do at least once in your life time. If you are interested check out these links:
Cheers and Happy Running!
