Chicago Marathon Announces 2014 Registration Changes

“Participant names will be selected at random from the full pool of lottery entrants to fill the remaining spots in 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon,” said race officials in a released statement earlier today. All individuals will be notified of their status on Monday, April 14th.

The 37th annual event – which began in 1977 – is capped at 45,000 runners. The change in the process is due to the registration site crashing last year, causing race officials to shut down the website and dole out the remaining 15,000 entries via a lottery system.
