AT&T Athlete Alerts
AT&T is once again proud to provide AT&T Athlete Alerts* at the Boston Marathon, which helps family and friends track the progress of registered runners in real time. Both text messages and e-mail updates from the April 15 event can be sent directly to designated mobile phone numbers and/or e-mail addresses. Updates are courtesy of AT&T and the Boston Marathon and will be sent when the runner reaches 10-kilometers, half marathon, 30-kilometers, 35-kilometers, 40-kilometers, and the finish line.
AT&T strongly encourages runners to register before race weekend. If you choose to sign up during race weekend, please bring the phone numbers and/or e-mail addresses with you to Bib Number Pick-up. Representatives will be available in the Bib Number Pick-Up area at the Boston Marathon Expo during expo hours to answer questions and provide AT&T Athlete Alerts registration assistance. AT&T will also have three Communication Centers located in the Family Meeting Area past the finish where runners can contact family members all over the world after they complete the race.
