More and more road races are going to a lottery system for registration. The latest to announce this – The Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
I am so glad I ran this one this past year. I never have the luck of the draw when it comes to a lottery draw. I am actually surprised it has taken this long for Chicago to do a lottery system for their marathon. Regardless, I wasn’t intending to run this one this fall…but it definitely holds a special place in my heart. It always will.
It was my first marathon!
Marine Corps Marathon went to lottery as well. I thought about running this one…but I chose another instead this time around.
But it’s on the list.
If the lottery ever works in my favor.
To those hoping to get into Chicago this year…good luck!
