GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The 37th annual Bellin Run has reached a record number of runners who have pre-registered ahead of Saturday's event.
Executive Director Randy Van Straten says 18,851 registered online and expects overall race participation around 19,500.
Online registration has closed, but Van Straten says Friday's in-person registration could include up to 1,000 people.
Police will be providing video surveillance for the event this year in response to the bombing at the Boston Marathon. Spectators and runners should have an airport mentality.
"Don't leave your bags lying around, keep things with you, maybe travel light," says Van Straten. "If you see something, say something."
Race officials say they'll have enhanced video surveillance along the course. Participants will also see increased law enforcement.
And there will be GPS tracking with emergency and medical personal.
Van Straten it will be good race weather, with low temperatures and no rain. No real course changes, so expect to see the same hills and grade throughout the race.
