> Can I ask why the line-up was eliminated?
The line-up was primarily a bonus for NYC-area runners. Now that we are
offering guaranteed entry to NYRRC Members who run 9 scored NYRRC events,
most NYC-area runners are covered by this new method.
Also, the line-up involved paper applications and many applicants have
expressed their desire to apply online, which is also better for us since
there is less data entry and subsequent errors in applicant information.
