125th Boston Marathon Live Splits (please note that this link is intended for media use only)
Please note that media credential allocations and workspaces within media areas are extremely limited at this year’s Boston Marathon. We will do our best to grant as many media credentials as possible, though are unable to guarantee access to those who have received media credentials in the past.
All attending media will be expected to follow COVID-19 mitigation efforts and policies established by the B.A.A., including, but not limited to, wearing masks in designated media areas, vaccination verification, or presentation of a negative COVID-19 test administered by the B.A.A. on race weekend. Further information will be shared with members of the media upon credential approval.
The Media Credential Application window has now closed.
