More than a hundred people wokr up bright and early today to get a good run in.

The program is for both the half and full marathon, and staff say it's a good way to get prepared for the real deal in April.

"When you go out and run with somebody on a day where you may not want to get out of bed and stuff, but you know everyone else is, it's just the comradery the feeling of being able to run together, talking to people and meeting new people it's a fun experience."

The price for marathon registration will increase mid-January. You can sign up online.
