Bellin Run Registration Numbers Climbing
May 21, 2010
New Blood Aplenty This Year
Veterans at the 2010 Bellin Run will have a lot of fresh, new company joining them this year. That’s because so far, registration numbers for the 34th annual event have revealed 4,498 Bellin Run first-timers.
According to figures released just this morning, total registration for the 8 a.m. Saturday, June 12 Bellin Run is at 11,454 people. On this date in 2009 – which saw record-breaking registration for the fifth-consecutive year – the Bellin Run had 9,326 registrants.
Organizers have said they are prepared for a sixth-consecutive year of record registration. Last year the Bellin Run drew a record 16,746 registrants.
Two key programs have been instrumental in boosting Bellin Run registration. The programs, Bellin Run Kids for Running and the Corporate Challenge, have thus far funneled 2,500 school-age students and 5,996 area employees, respectively, into the growing numbers of Bellin Run registrants.
Combined, both programs have drawn 3,427 first-time Bellin Run registrants.
