Verification of qualifying times continuing

Some of those who submitted their entry for the 2014 Boston Marathon have received confirmation from the B.A.A. Most of those who have not received confirmation of acceptance by email from the B.A.A. are still having their qualifying performance validated and verified.

The amount of time that it takes for the B.A.A. to validate a qualifying performance can vary from race to race and depending on the data submitted on the application. All those who submitted their entry will have received a reference ID number upon submission, which holds your place. Therefore, it is not necessary to send an email in follow-up to our office. In addition, it should be noted that we do not reject entries because of typos. Thank you for your cooperation during the registration process.

B.A.A. Moment 2

1935 John A. Kelley

Born in West Medford, Massachusetts as one of ten children, Kelley ran track and cross-country at Arlington High School in Massachusetts. He did not finish his first Boston Marathon in 1928, but eventually competed in a record 61 Boston Marathons. A legend of the marathon, Kelley won the 1935 and 1945 runnings of the Boston Marathon. He finished in second place at Boston a record seven times. Between 1934 to 1950, he finished in the top five 15 times at Boston, consistently running in the 2:30s. He ran his last full marathon at Boston in 1992 at the age of 84, his 61st start and 58th finish there.
