Say it ain't so, $35 registration for this race? If I enter by 11/30. It was only $20 last year. This is one of my favorite races but this increase needs an explanation.

That ain't right-----these races use it when they get new sponsors sometimes. There was a nice article in the Running column last week about the rebranding of the race. Looks like the race organizers used the rebranding to up the entry fee.

But, remember, we are the consumers---we have a choice. If we choose not to enter, the race has to make a decision-----

What is the $15 extra paying for----beer is usually donated by sponsors? Bands? What is it?

I know I have brought this up ion the past. perhaps it needs to be mentioned again.
I have a very hard time with pre-entries having to be in so early. it is a long way from 30 November to 10 February. Anything can happen.
I could justify a price increase as the date approaches, say, after 31 January or so.
Why the early date for a better price?

Seems like a fair price, they are adding beer, portable toilets, a band and finishers medals. The course is well marshaled and safe and the 5 mile runners need to be transported via bus which is another expense.

I don't have an issue with the price increase.

Plus it is chip timed with throw away rfid tags in the bibs, so you have to buy more expensive bibs and pay people to hand enter data on race day for all the walk ups and drag all the equipment, trusses, mats barriers, generators, etc. etc. out to Lockport in the snow with a staff to run it.

Just toilets and timing might be $1500 or more
