Don't leave home without it!
For the first time the Boston Athletic Association has created a RUNNER PASSPORT™ to help all runners maximize their Boston Marathon experience. There are city maps, visitor suggestions, and key race information throughout the booklet, and you should not leave home with out it. Most importantly, your Number Pick-Up Card is the back cover, and can be submitted at the John Hancock Sports and Fitness Expo.
If you are unable to pick up your own bib number, there are some instructions for a proxy to do so. Learn more about the Number Pick-Up process by clicking the button below:
Your PRE-RACE DINNER TICKET is also included on the first page. The dinner runs from 4:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 14, 2013. Please come at the time designated on the ticket. If you’d like to come at a different time, please exchange tickets with another runner. Additional tickets are available for $20 at the “Party Tickets” booth in the number pick-up hall of the John Hancock Sports & Fitness Expo.
After you turn in your Number Pick-Up card, you'll be given your bib number packet, and a blue lanyard with a plastic sleeve. Put your passport in the sleeve, and you may wish to wear it around your neck to identify yourself to others as a Boston Marathon participant. You earned it.
