Are you ready for the Augusta University Half Marathon, 10K and 5K?

The Augusta University Half Marathon, 10K and 5K is less than 10 days away: Are you ready?

Do you need to register? Registration remains open until Saturday, Feb 25, so head over to the Augusta University Half Marathon site and get that taken care of right now.

Do you want to volunteer? Slots are still available, so visit the Volunteer page now, while you’re thinking about it.

Registered for the race and want to see what you’ve gotten yourself into? Check out the course maps.

Forgot where to go to pick up your packet or how to sign up for the pre-race pasta dinner? Print out the schedule of events.

Want to see who won last year? (Hint: the overall winner was an alumnus who went on to compete in the marathon at last summer’s Olympic Games in Rio). The site has a rundown of all the results in all the categories going back to 2013.

Afraid you might forget when the race is? The site has a cool countdown clock.

So face it – you’ve really got no excuse not to participate. And if you’re got good with countdown clocks, the race is Sunday, Feb. 26.
