The Marine Corps Marathon lottery - a new format for runners to register for the race - is now open for applicants. Participants 14 and older are eligible for the lottery from which MCM participants will be chosen. Those who have been picked will be notified starting March 19.
MCM is holding a lottery for the first time since 2004.
"MCM registration now is more accessible to everyone, over a longer period so runners don't have to be concerned about missing out on an opportunity to run the MCM because they are at work or not able to get online the instant registration opens," Rick Nealis, MCM Director, said in a press release.
The registration fee for the 2014 event is $110. No charges will be made until a runner is officially registered.
