BOSTON – Registration for the 2016 B.A.A. Distance Medley will begin at 10:00 a.m. ET on Tuesday, January 19, 2016, allowing for early entry into the three-race series. In its fifth year, the B.A.A. Distance Medley is comprised of April’s B.A.A. 5K, June’s B.A.A. 10K, and October’s B.A.A. Half Marathon, presented by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund.

During this exclusive registration window, runners interested in entering all three of the B.A.A. Distance Medley events can sign up for the series online at www.baa.org. Registration for the series will be limited to the first 3,000 registrants.

The 2016 B.A.A. Distance Medley begins with the B.A.A. 5K on Saturday, April 16, followed by the B.A.A. 10K on Sunday, June 26, and finishes with the B.A.A. Half Marathon, presented by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, on Sunday, October 9.

Everyone who completes the B.A.A. Distance Medley will receive a special commemorative medal for the series, in addition to receiving a finisher's medal for each race. Each runner will also be listed on the B.A.A. Distance Medley Leader Board, which ranks the top male and female competitors throughout the series. Runners who register for the B.A.A. Distance Medley in January will receive a special bib number indicating they are a B.A.A. Distance Medley participant. In 2015, 752 men and 841 women completed the three race series.

B.A.A. Distance Medley age group awards will also be given to the top finishers in the following age groups: 14-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-70, 70-74, 75-79, and 80+. Your age group category in the 2016 B.A.A. Distance Medley will be determined by the age which you will be on race day at the 2016 B.A.A. Half Marathon, scheduled for Sunday, October 9, 2016.

The B.A.A. Distance Medley registration window of January 19 through January 22, 2016 is only available to runners who wish to sign up for all three events in the series. The cost to register for the 2016 B.A.A. Distance Medley is $225 USD.
