Two runners have filed a lawsuit against organizers of the New York City Marathon, saying there's no fairness in how many participants are selected.

FOX's Gurnal Scott has the story:

Utah runners Matthew Clark and Charles Konopa are seeking more than $10.5-million in damages from New York Road Runners Incorporated.

They say the marathon's use of a lottery to determine who runs violates New York State law. The plaintiffs say fewer than 20% of those who take part in the lottery actually get to race.

Clark and Konopa filed on the same day organizers opened a month-long window for runners to register for the November 6 race. They are seeking to make this a class action suit.

The New York Marathon is the largest event of its kind in the world, more than 50,000 runners took part last year.
