yes us too! i forgot about it but it was still open around lunchtime! incredible.
actually i just checked and it is STILL open more than 24 hours later!!
Seems like it’s taken longer to sell out the last couple years. I registered pretty late last year.
PMETR used to be the only game in town over the winter. Now there are plenty of other trail races to choose from. The SLUGs are finding the same thing now that several other organizations are putting on ultras: we still sell out every race, but not on the first day. I don't think the market is over-served, just at a better equilibrium. People who want to get in, can, and without having to do it in the first five minutes.
