BOSTON -- Registration for the 2019 Boston Marathon opens on Monday, September 10, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. ET. The B.A.A. will use the same process to register qualified runners as it used in the 2012 through 2018 Boston Marathons, allowing the fastest qualifiers to register first.
Registration will be held entirely online at www.baa.org, and qualifying performances run since September 16, 2017 may be submitted for entry.
In cooperation with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the eight cities and towns along the Boston Marathon route, the B.A.A. has set the field size for the 2018 Boston Marathon at 30,000 official entrants. The 123rd annual race will mark the 34th consecutive year that the event will have John Hancock as its principal sponsor.
