The 2010 Bank of America Chicago Marathon has reached its full capacity of 45,000 runners. The Ocotber 10th race sold out in 51 days, a full month earlier than it did in 2009.
Executive race director Carey Pinkowski said, “This record rate of registration illustrates the growing popularity of the sport and our race in particular based on our 33-year tradition, but we are also hearing excitement for the historic date of 10/10/10 which ads a unique trill this year.”
Some entries are still available to those interested in running for a charity or with a tour group. Pinkowski commented, “The demand that remains to get into this race will be a tremendous benefit to our charity partners and has the capacity to break our record of $10 million dollars in total funds raised.”
