Registration for the Newport News Once City Marathon is officially open.
Friday afternoon, the city announced a date change on Facebook:
"Same great race. New race date," a flyer stated.
The race will be held March 4, 2018, to avoid running on Daylight Savings Day, spokesman Telly Whitfield said.

The first 100 people to register will be entered into a drawing for over $300 in prizes and gift cards. Multiple winners will be notified they won via email, the flyer said.
