The 2014 Marine Corps Marathon has gone to a lottery system for public registration—and it begins today at 12 Noon, Eastern time. Registration will remain open until Saturday, March 15th at Noon. This means no more frenzy with tens of thousands of runners trying to get on the website at the same time to enter through the previous first-come, first-served format.

Runners will learn whether they've gotten in on March 19th. The 2014 Marine Corps Marathon will be held on October 26th.

According to the Marine Corps Marathon website, this is the first time the race has used a lottery entry format since 2004. Find all the Marine Corps Marathon registration details here.  See the press release about 2014 Marine Corps Marathon registration here (PDF).

Good luck to all would-be MCM participants!
