Please be prepared to show your photo I.D. If you have lost your card, a duplicate will be issued upon presentation of a photo I.D. Special tables will be set up in the Number Pick-up area for this purpose. After you receive your bib number, you will be directed to pick up your T-shirt and race packet.

New for the 2014 Boston Marathon, we are requiring that all participants claim their own bib number at the John Hancock Sports & Fitness Expo during normal expo hours. Friends or family will not be allowed to claim your bib number for you. We want to communicate this change to you early so that you may plan accordingly. The official bib that is assigned to you by the B.A.A. for the 2014 Boston Marathon must be visible at all times while on/in B.A.A. buses and other B.A.A. vehicles; entering, and in, the Athletes’ Village in Hopkinton; in the start area corrals and start area; on the race course; and in the finish area in Boston. Your bib number may not be altered or copied in any way and may not be transferred to another participant or another B.A.A. event.

Absolutely no marathon bib numbers will be available for pick-up on race day, Monday, April 21. Runners’ T-shirts will be packed into your race packet. After you pick up your number you will be directed to tables that indicate the T-shirt sizes (Womens: S – XL; Men's: S – XL).

All of the above information is subject to change

B.A.A. Moment 1

1920 - Ashland Start

The Boston Marathon began in Ashland, Massachusetts from 1897 through 1923 then moved to Hopkinton for the 1924 race. The course was lengthened to 26 miles, 385 yards to conform to the Olympic standard, and the starting line was moved west from Ashland to Hopkinton. Since then, the race has started in Hopkinton every year.
