What is BibTag and how is it used in the Half Marathon?
The BibTag timing system will enable you to receive your official time (time from the starter's gun), as well as your net running time. The BibTag is affixed to your bib number and must be worn on your outer layer for the entire race for you to be scored and timed and for you to appear among the results as an official finisher. Please handle the tag with care, as bent or damaged tags may not work correctly.
How long will the Half Marathon course be open and at what time will timing stop?
Timing will conclude three hours after the starting horn sounds. Official participants have three hours (3:00:00) net time to complete the race. Only participants who complete the race within this allotted time will be considered official finishers. Roads and paths along the route will begin to reopen to traffic prior to the conclusion of timing and scoring, and those remain¬ing on the course will be directed off the roadways and on to walkways by local police.
When applying for entry into the Boston Marathon, what proof of qualifying do I need to provide?
