CHICAGO — Organizers of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon still don't have a plan for how runners can sign up for the final 15,000 spots in the race.
But they said Thursday that they will announce a new plan for registration on Feb. 28.
Registration for the race was halted completely Tuesday after the site experienced technical problems.
Although 30,000 runners were able to successfully register, 15,000 spots are still up for grabs.
"Our team is working around the clock to determine a timely, fair, and effective registration solution to fill the remaining 15,000 entries without further technical complications," organizers said in a statement. " ... We understand the frustrations and appreciate the continued patience during this process."
