Chicago Marathon to have registration lottery

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

More than a week after registration was suspended due to technical issues the Chicago Marathon announced registration will reopen with a lottery next week.

Lottery information was posted Thursday on the marathon's website. Marathon officials said a lottery would be the fairest way to offer the remaining 15,000 entries for the Oct. 13 race. About 30,000 runners were able to sign up before registration was suspended on Feb. 19. Those entries will be honored. The race has a total 45,000 entries available.

Runners can sign up for the lottery from Tuesday through Thursday next week. Lottery officials will randomly select 15,000 names from those entries. Those individuals will be notified March 12 and have until March 14 to complete their registrations.
