    Registration for the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington sold out Wednesday, the first day public registration went online.

    Members of the military were allowed to register early.

    According to a report from The Washington Post, many runners were frustrated by an online registration process beset with glitches -- but the race still sold out in a record 2 hours, 27 minutes.

    In 2012, the marathon sold out in two hours and 41 minutes.

    The 26.2-mile course passes the Washington Monument, Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials as well as the Pentagon.

    The 38th annual race will be held on Oct. 27.
