Friday was the second day of registration, after 600 entries reserved for Cape Elizabeth residents were filled Thursday morning.

A lottery for an additional 1,950 race bibs began after the 4,000 slots available Friday were filled.

Race organizers used a new “controlled queue entry” system during registration to reduce technical problems that created frustration for many people last year.

This year’s race will be held Aug. 4 in Cape Elizabeth.
