Taipei, Sept. 14 (CNA) The Taipei Marathon, previously known as the Taipei Fubon Marathon, is now open for online registration, with the number of runners limited to 27,000, the organizers announced Monday.
If more than 27,000 people register, participation will be decided by drawing lots, according to the Taipei City Department of Sports.
It is the first time that the drawing of lots has been introduced as means of selecting runners for the annual marathon.
Another change this year is that the event has been renamed the Taipei Marathon as it no longer has a naming rights sponsor, which used to be Fubon Financial Holdings Co.(富邦金控) [FULL STORY]
