Boston Marathon Open to All Qualifiers Until 5:00pm 9-21

2017 Boston Marathon Registration Now Open

 

Registration Will Remain Open until 5:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, September 21

 

BOSTON
– Registration for the 2017 Boston Marathon is open and will continue
to be open through Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. ET. During
this period, any eligible qualifier may submit an application for entry
into next April‰Ûªs race. Entry during this period is not first-come,
first-served; rather, the fastest qualifiers in their gender and age
group will gain acceptance as space allows.

 

The 121st Boston Marathon will be held on Monday, April 17, 2017, Patriots’ Day in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

 

Those accepted for entry will be notified via e-mail and their names will be posted to the “Entrants” page of www.baa.org. Entry will be based on the amount of remaining field size space and an applicant’s qualifying performance.  

 

The
first week of registration concluded at 10:00 p.m. ET on Saturday,
September 17, during which time qualifiers who bettered their qualifying
standard by 20 minutes, 10 minutes, and five minutes could submit an
online entry.

 

Registration
re-opened on Monday, September 19 at 10:00 a.m. ET for athletes who
have met the Boston Marathon standards by any amount of time.

 

Due
to field size limitations, not all qualifiers who submit an entry will
necessarily be accepted. If more runners apply than can be accepted,
then acceptance will be granted to the fastest qualifiers among the
applicants.

 

The
B.A.A. will not predict or provide an anticipated date for when the
race will reach its maximum field of qualified applicants, nor will the
B.A.A. predict the “cut off” time needed to gain an individual entry
into the 2017 Boston Marathon. The total number of qualifiers and their
qualifying times determine such “cut off” times.

 

Registration
for individuals who wish to participate among the wheelchair division,
visually impaired division, and mobility impaired program (including duo
teams and hand-cycles) will open on Monday, October 3, 2016 at 10:00
a.m. ET. For athletes with disabilities, specific information on the
registration timetable can be found at www.baa.org.

 

Updates
will be provided on a consistent basis through the B.A.A.’s website,
Facebook page and Twitter account. The “Registration Updates” page on www.baa.org also provides additional information.
