The fee goes to $50 after July 15 for those who register by Aug. 5. Late registration after that date is $60 up to 9 p.m. Aug. 29.




Meanwhile, time also is ticking on special singlet orders. Orders for the special $30 Brooks running singlet that features the CDR logo must be received by July 31.
