Registration for the 2014 Boston Marathon re-opens on Monday, September 16 at 10:00 a.m. ET to runners who have met Boston's Qualifying Standards, and application submissions will be received through Friday, September 20 at 5:00 p.m. ET. During this period, any eligible qualifier may submit an application for entry.  Please note that entry is not first-come, first-served.

At the conclusion of this period, those accepted for entry will be notified via email and their names will be posted to the "Entrants" page of www.baa.org. Entry will be based on remaining space and an applicant's qualifying performance.

The large volume of applications received combined with the qualifying race submitted will result in verification and acceptance notification varying from one individual to another.  Next week, at the conclusion of the entry period notifications will be issued.

1966 - Bobbi Gibb

Although not an official entrant, Roberta “Bobbi” Gibb became the first woman to run the Boston Marathon. Joining the starting field shortly after the gun had been fired, Gibb finished the race in 3:21:40 to place 126th overall. Gibb again claimed the “unofficial” title in 1967 and 1968.
