Second Annual CFB Couch Marathon
Get ready for the premiere couch napping event of the year: The CFB Ultimate Couch Marathon – the “Couchathon.” Sign up for a full Couch Marathon (26.2 hours) or Half Couch Marathon (13.1 hours) and nap with the world’s most elite couchers. Don’t miss out on your chance to be a participant in this exciting event.
The marathon will start on the couch and end on the couch. (That’s why we call it a couch marathon.) The marathon begins at 9 AM sharp. A late start at 11 AM or 3 PM is available for marathoners who don’t expect to be awake that early in the day.
- Entry fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
- You must be in good health and physically prepared to take on the challenge of a Couchathon.
- You must show photo ID or catnip to receive your marathon number and timing chip.
- State of the art Couch-Track timing tags will be attached to your couch to record participants’ times. Marathon numbers are required to participate.

Q: How much does it cost to register?
A: It’s up to you. Anyone who makes a donation — of any size — to my shelter’s annual fund raiser will be registered for the Couchathon. http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/CatFoodBreath/2013-walk-and-run
