Chicago Marathon registration to begin March 19 after glitch

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

It happened last year and now it's happened again — a system glitch has put a halt to the online registration for the 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon.

Registration was supposed to begin Wednesday, but instead is being postponed until March 19, according to the marathon's website.

Race organizers said they plan to "finalize a routine yet comprehensive assessment of our new registration process."

"We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding as we aim to ensure a seamless registration experience for all who wish to register for this event," according to the web site statement.

Last year, the online registration system crashed shortly after people began signing up. Race organizers eventually turned to a lottery to fill the remaining slots.

The marathon is set for Oct. 12.
