After a website glitch postponed online registration for two weeks in March, 45,000 of the 71,000 applicants for the 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon will be notified of their status Monday via email.
A large portion of participants was selected for the Oct. 12 race through a lottery system, a statement from the marathon said. The rest of the entrants include time qualifiers, legacy finishers, international tour groups and charity runners.
The marathon introduced the partial lottery system in 2013 in an effort to meet the demand of participants, the statement said.
All lottery entrants will be notified of their status and receive instructions on how to complete the registration process via email Monday, the statement said.
The race’s charity program is still accepting a limited number of applications for the marathon for people who wish to participate by joining a charity team.
