BOSTON
— Registration for the 2015 Boston Marathon opens on Monday, September
8, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. ET. The B.A.A. will use the same process to
register qualified runners as it used in the 2012, 2013, and 2014 Boston
Marathons, allowing the fastest qualifiers to
register first.

Registration will be held entirely online at
www.baa.org.
The qualification window for the 2015 Boston Marathon began last year on September 14, 2013.

In
cooperation with the
Commonwealth of
Massachusetts and the eight cities and towns along the Boston Marathon
route, the B.A.A. has set the field size for the 2015 Boston Marathon at
30,000 official entrants. The 119th Boston Marathon will be held on
Monday, April 20,
2015 and will mark the 30th consecutive year that the event will have
John Hancock Financial as its principal sponsor.
