From the Mountain Times:

The American Red Cross has announced that the 14th annual Blood Sweat & Gears has sold out.

The event, scheduled for Saturday, June 23, sold out in seven hours (100-mile route) and the 52-mile route sold out in 10 hours.

“We currently have a waiting list of 450 riders. Blood Sweat & Gears has come a long way in 14 years — only 200 riders braved the course in its first year. The race now supports 750 full century riders and 500 half century riders,” officials with the Watauga County Chapter of the American Red Cross said.
