For the 2015 B.A.A. Half Marathon, the B.A.A. filled the first 2,000 slots in the race on a first-come, first-served basis on July 15. Registrations reached this initial limit within minutes on our opening day. The remaining 3,000 slots were assigned through random selection from among the applications received before 5:00 p.m. (ET) on Thursday, July 16, when registration closed. There are also more than 2,600 individuals who pre-registered in January and who are part of our B.A.A. Distance Medley, the three race series which combines the B.A.A. 5K in April, the B.A.A. 10K in June, and the B.A.A. Half Marathon in October.

A number of spots have also been reserved for our presenting sponsor, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund.

B.A.A. Moment 3

1966 - Bobbi Gibb

Although not an official entrant, Roberta “Bobbi” Gibb became the first woman to run the Boston Marathon. Joining the starting field shortly after the gun had been fired, Gibb finished the race in 3:21:40 to place 126th overall. Gibb again claimed the “unofficial” title in 1967 and 1968.
