I’m not sure what is going on with the ING New York City Marathon “Opening Day” today, but they are now saying that lottery results will not be officially released until tomorrow, April 26th. It appears the ones who were selected have already had the race fee hit their credit/debit cards, and nothing has come through for me. Guess that means it is unlikely I was chosen for 2012, but at least I’ll get guaranteed entry into 2013!
Update: (From Examiner.com) – Unfortunately, most runners will have to wait until Thursday to see if they have a spot in next November’s race. So many people went to the NYRR website to check the lottery results that the system went down. Some runners, however, learned that they’ll be headed to New York in the fall because the entrance fee was charged to their credit card on Wednesday.
