Craft Classic Coupons 

Coupons always make a race better.  To be fare the tierred pricing most running events use are already a form of a coupon. The race offers you a lower entry fee for signing up sooner. So if you know you are going to participate then it is best to sign up right away (and then do not mention to your significant other you have signed up until the event gets closer.)

2018 Atlanta Coupon Codes

First - takes $5 off, valid for the 100 people who sign up for the half marathon.  I tried it on Feb 1 and it did not work

Spoke with one of the organizers and given the lower price of the event, they will not be doing many coupons.  Sounds reasonable to me.

To the person who stole my fitbit, lets keep it up. We had a great July, now is not the time to loose momentum.
