Broad Street Run lottery opens today

Gallery: Broad Street Run lottery opens today

Runners can sign up for this year's Blue Cross Broad Street Run starting today -- but this year, there's no rush to register before spots sell out.

After last year's race, which used first-come, first-served registration, sold out in five hours, organizers moved to a lottery system for this year.

The lottery opened at 12:01 a.m. today and will close Feb. 15 at 11:59 p.m.

Runners who received one of the 40,000 slots in the race will be notified by email by 10 a.m. on Feb. 19. You can also check your status on
