Lance Armstrong's troubles continue.  The city of Chicago won't let Armstrong run in the city's annual marathon set for October, reports ESPN.com.

The city is upholding the ruling made by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that Armstrong not only be stripped of his seven Tour de France cycling titles but banned for life from all sports as well.

Armstrong had planned to run and raise money for his cancer foundation, Livestrong. USA Track & Field must enforce rulings made by USADA.

"We got the news (Thursday)," said Mark Fabiani, Armstrong's spokesman, according to Runner's World. "It seems a little over the top to pursue him beyond the cycling arena to me," John Conley, whose company owns and operates the Livestrong Austin Marathon and Half Marathon, told Runner's World.
