Please be aware that as we receive application submissions for the 2014 Boston Marathon, we continue to work on changes which will be evident and in effect at the event.

The 2014 Boston Marathon will be a special event for the City of Boston and all of the municipalities along the course, as well as the sport. The B.A.A. and all involved with producing the event and staging the race are committed to retaining the characteristics which make the Boston Marathon unique. As we seek to do this, official entrants (registered participants), volunteers and spectators may be asked for additional cooperation in certain areas, including transportation, baggage and other logistics.

Among the changes, it is anticipated participants will be asked to submit to security checks of their personal belongings.  Participants may be asked to significantly reduce, or eliminate, the belongings that they carry with them on the transportation provided by the B.A.A. and into race areas.

Participants should be prepared for the possibility that the checking and pick-up of personal belongings will not be allowed.

Additional details will be forthcoming and directly communicated to official participants by email and as updates to the official race web site ( as decisions are made. Information will be made available to participants with ample time for individual planning.
