BOSTON – The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) announced that registration for the 2015 B.A.A. 5K has closed after its 10,000 entrant field size limit was reached. The B.A.A. 5K will be held on Saturday, April 18, 2015, two days prior to the Boston Marathon® and will be the first event of the 2015 B.A.A. Distance Medley. Registration opened on Wednesday, February 4 at 10:00 a.m. ET and closed on Friday, February 13 at 3:00 p.m. ET.

The B.A.A. 5K is a flat, loop course that starts and finishes at historic Boston Common in Boston’s Back Bay. The course passes several Boston landmarks, including the Boston Marathon Finish Line, trendy Newbury Street, and the Boston Public Garden.

The B.A.A. 5K is the first race of the 2015 B.A.A. Distance Medley, a three-race series which combines the B.A.A. 5K, the B.A.A. 10K on June 21, and the B.A.A. Half Marathon, presented by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, on October 11. Already registered for the 2015 B.A.A. 5K were 2,618 runners who signed up for all three events during an exclusive registration period in January.

A prize purse of $39,900 USD is at stake in the B.A.A. 5K. Prize money will be distributed to the top ten runners overall, the top three in the masters division, and the top three in the push rim wheelchair division. Prize money awards are equal for men and women and are based on gun time results. The overall men’s and women’s B.A.A. 5K champions will each receive $7,500 in prize money.
