Chicago Marathon corral assignments?

Chicago Marathon corral assignments?

Post  fostever on Tue Aug 19, 2014 12:36 pm

Does anyone who is registered for BOA know when the corral assignments are being released? All I find is "participants will be notified by e-mail." I see Aug 25 as a cut off day. All I see is a couple dashes next to the assignment box in athlete center.

BACM originally promised corral assignments by Aug. 1.  On Aug. 1 they posted that they'd have them up within two weeks. Now, when you search the website, you'll find somewhere a promise that they will be notifying people by email when these are up. Not sure what the problem is, but clearly they've been having one. I have not received any email yet, and my corral assignment shows as yours does (as does my friend who I am running this with).
Patience, I guess.

Like Schuey said, the assignments are up.

I qualified for D but asked to be put in E, with my buddy Steve, and they screwed up and left me in D. I've asked to be pushed back to E. Hopefully, they'll do so, because the news this year is that you can't just move back a corral on your own.

It's crazy that the deadline to seek reassignment is still this coming Tuesday, despite the fact that they were four weeks late in making the corral assignments!

So they are not letting go back on your own?? What happens if you show up late and miss your corrals start?

Nick: I'm not sure how they will handle late folks, but here is an excerpt from the FAQ on the BACM website:

"Can I switch from one start corral to another on race day?
No, all participants must start in their assigned start corral on race day. Unlike previous years, you cannot move back to a later start corral on race day. All start corral changes must be made prior to the August 25, 2014 deadline."
