Register for one of the distances of the City Pier City 8915 is still possible: it is just no longer possible to get your name on your bib number. Via the registration page of the CPC

you can register for various distances such as the youth run, 5k, 10k and half marathon . The costs differ per distance, but you will receive a nice medal with every run.
