BOSTON – The first week of the B.A.A.’s new registration process for the
2012 Boston Marathon is now closed. For the second week, anyone who has met
their qualifying time may submit an application for entry beginning Monday,
Sept. 19 at 10 a.m. ET and continuing through Friday, Sept. 23 at 5 p.m. ET.
Entry is NOT first come, first served, and accepted entrants will be informed
at the conclusion of this period. The official web site to submit an
application for entry is
www.baa.org

 

“We
are very pleased that the opportunity to enter the 2012 Boston Marathon remains
open to yet more athletes who have trained so hard and run so well over the
past 18 months,” said B.A.A. Executive Director Tom Grilk. “It is
both humbling and motivating to us at the B.A.A. that people want to come run
in Boston.
Everyone who qualifies for the Boston Marathon has our enormous respect, and we
appreciate the cooperation marathoners have displayed through the
implementation of our new registration process.”

 

The
verification process of qualifying performances for those who submitted an
application for entry into the 2012 Boston Marathon through 10:00 p.m. ET on
Saturday, Sept. 17 is in progress. Email notification of acceptance and posting
of names to the “Entrants” page of
