Chicago Marathon site crashes on first day of registration

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Registration for the 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon has been temporarily suspended.

The registration process initially opened Tuesday at noon, but the majority of people trying to register for the race received an error message.

Marathon spokesperson Carey Pinkowski says there are currently 15,000 entries remaining as of 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, but that system-wide technical issues led to the shutdown. They say that once the issues have been resolved, the site will reopen with ample notice given beforehand.

In a statement, Pinkowski apologized for the difficulties, adding "We have been working nonstop with our registration provider to find the root of the problem and a solution."

Pinkowski says they do not plan on reopening registration within the next two days.

    Given their history, last season sure was an odd one for the Chicago Bears. Just as they finally managed to get things right on offense, their defense pulled off quite a disappearing act. Well, it's back. At least, the Bears think it's back.
