The Lottery

Chicago Marathon

Chicago Marathon

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!

  1. My Mom picked this one for me because she wants the vacation. The running group is also trying for it. I think with 45k slots, I will have a good chance. I’m glad you got to experience it last year.
