2012 Participants are able to defer to 2013
BOSTON MARATHON WEATHER UPDATE
Due to warm weather in Monday's forecast, a deferment option has been introduced.
Due to the unusually warm weather forecast for the Boston area on Monday, the B.A.A. will defer the entry of those official entrants to the 2013 Boston Marathon for participants who decide not to race.
This applies to official entrants (including charity runners or other waiver runners) ONLY, who either have claimed or will claim their bib number packet at the John Hancock Sports & Fitness Expo through Sunday evening at the Seaport World Trade Center in South Boston.
RULES FOR DEFERMENT:
Runners must claim their bib number for deferment to be an option.
In order to receive a deferment for 2013, race participants may NOT start the race.
No refund for the 2012 entry will be given. All entry fees for 2013 must be paid.
In addition, the B.A.A. will keep the finish systems open an additional hour on race day. Whereas the finish systems generally cease just prior to 5:00 p.m., this year the finish systems will remain open until approximately 6:00 p.m.
Once you have fulfilled these rules, you will be notified after this year's event regarding how to claim your position in next year's event.
Note, this is NOT a free entry into the 2013 race, but simply a reserved spot in the field. You will have to pay a 2013 entry fee.
The B.A.A. thanks all participants for their cooperation in this matter.
