Chicago Marathon Delays Registration To Avoid Repeat Of Glitch
Organizers of this year's Bank of America Chicago Marathon postponed today's planned registration for two weeks "to avoid the sort of embarrassing glitch that halted the online signup for runners last year." Registration is now set to begin March 19. A race official said, "The final assessment of the registration process is taking longer than anticipated." A new company, Kimbia Racing, is now running the registration website, and the marathon official said the delay is "not an issue of theirs" (SUNTIMES.com, 3/5).
