B.A.A. Announces 2022 Boston Marathon Registration Dates & Qualifying Window for first Patriots’ Day Boston Marathon since 2019

Registration opens Monday, November 8 at 10:00 AM ET

BOSTON— Registration for the 2022 Boston Marathon will take place over five days, November 8–November 12, 2021. The 126th Boston Marathon, scheduled to take place on Monday, April 18, 2022, will be the first race held on the traditional Patriots’ Day date since 2019.

The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) will use the same registration process for qualified runners as it used for the 2021 race, allowing any athlete who has achieved a currently valid Boston Marathon qualifying time to submit a registration application between November 8-12, 2021 through the B.A.A.’s online platform, Athletes' Village. Registration is not first come, first served and applications will be accepted until 5:00PM ET on Friday, November 12. The qualifying window began on September 1, 2019 and will close at 5:00PM ET on Friday, November 12. Qualifiers may submit an application at any point during the registration window.

“Athletes from around the world strive to earn a place on the Boston Marathon start line each and every year," said Tom Grilk, B.A.A. President and Chief Executive Officer. "The return to racing on the third Monday in April 2022 will certainly be one of the most highly anticipated races in Boston Marathon history. Though we are in the initial planning stages for 2022, we hope the traditional race date will also be complemented by a more traditional field size.”

The qualifying window for the 127th Boston Marathon, scheduled to take place on April 17, 2023, will begin on September 1, 2021. Registration details for that race will be announced following the 2022 Boston Marathon.

Additional registration information, including entry fees, for the 126th Boston Marathon will be announced in the coming months. Achieving one’s qualifying standard does not guarantee acceptance into the Boston Marathon due to field size limitations. Those who are fastest among the pool of applicants in their age and gender group will be accepted.
