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).

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.
