Registration closes at 10:00 p.m. tonight, but will re-open Monday, September 16

Registration for the 2014 Boston Marathon will re-open on Monday, September 16, 2013 at 10:00 a.m.  ET and will continue through Friday, September 20, 2013 at 5:00p.m.

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 this web site. 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.  Only at the conclusion of the entry period will notification be issued.

Due to field size limitations, it is possible that not all qualifiers who submit an entry will be accepted. If more runners apply than can be accepted, then acceptance will be granted to the fastest Qualifiers among the applicants. Those not accepted for entry also will receive an email from the B.A.A. at the conclusion of the application period, and their credit cards will not be processed (though credit cards will be held for authorization through the week of registration).

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.
