New York Marathon   Nov. 6, 1994
=====================
For U.S. residents: Send a self-addressed #10 business-size envelope (about
4" x 9.5") and a check or money order (no cash) for a $5.00 non-refundable
handling fee. Make the check payable to: NYRRC.

* Send AFTER midnight of "set start date."  All requests must be posted
"start date" or later.

NYRRC

(212) 860-4455


accepting requests for applications, about May 15-20. Prospective
applicants must send a SASE and $5, postmarked ON OR AFTER this date, to a
PO Box in NY. They send a blank application, with no guarantee of anything,
fairly promptly.

Fill it out and return it ASAP. A caveat: You must be a member of UST&F,
the USA's governing federation of running, to run in the NYCM. You can
apply for entry along with your marathon application; instructions and
UST&F application are sent with the blank NYCM application. Makes it very
easy.

They accept applications on the following basis:

8,000 slots are reserved for non-USA runners (don't know how  these are
allocated).

12,000 applications are accepted "first-come, first served" basis. The
NYRRC claims that this is not a tough thing if you act promptly - i.e. send
your request for ap on "Opening Day", and mail back the completed ap within
a day or two.

5,000 slots remain. Once the above criteria are filled, all applications
received go (figuratively) into a big, big box. In late July or early
August, the NYRRC draws out the 5,000 lucky envelopes. These entries are
accepted. They keep drawing a few hundred more, I guess, to set up a
waiting list in the event of cancellations.

NB: the rest of the applications are returned with refunded entry fee.

* Send a separate envelope and a $5 check for each entry form requested. *
