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).

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.
