Right. They got lucky though having expanded their series during a running boom as never (?) seen before. You can organize awful races and still have year on year growth. It's insane. They could start a "2012 New York City Rock'n'Roll Sunset Marathon" and the race would sell out, no matter what the limit or reg fee would be.
