Registration for the 2012 Boston Marathon Opens This Month
Registration for the 2012 Boston Marathon Begins Monday, September 12
The B.A.A. reminds you that applications for the 2012 Boston Marathon registration will begin to be received at 10:00 a.m. ET on Monday, September 12, 2011. The new registration process will allow the fastest qualifiers to register first, and the registration period will continue for two weeks, or until the field size is reached. Race registration will be held entirely online at www.baa.org.
On Monday, September 12, eligible runners who have met the qualifying standards for their age and gender by 20 minutes or more may register for the 2012 Boston Marathon.
On Wednesday, September 14 at 10:00 a.m. ET (if space remains), registration will open for those who've met their qualifying standards by 10 minutes or more.
On Friday, September 16 at 10:00 a.m. ET (if space remains), registration will open for those who have met their qualifying standards by five minutes or more.
Registration will close Saturday, September 17 at 10:00 p.m. ET and (if space remains) will re-open on Monday, September 19 at 10:00 a.m. ET to all qualifiers until September 23 at 5:00 p.m. ET. Those who are the fastest among the pool of applicants in their age and gender will be accepted.
Boston Marathon Registration Dates:
Monday, September 12: Qualifiers 20 minutes, 00 seconds or faster
Wednesday, September 14: Qualifiers 10 minutes, 00 seconds or faster (if space remains)
Friday, September 16: Qualifiers 5 minutes, 00 seconds or faster (if space remains)
Monday, September 19: All qualifiers (if space remains)
The 59 seconds cushion, which had been given to runners in years past, is only applicable for week two qualifiers (September 19 - September 23).
If space remains available after the two week process, registration will remain open to any qualifier on a first come, first served basis until the maximum field size is reached.
The B.A.A. will make an announcement if the field size limit is reached prior to the conclusion of the registration period.
Though the B.A.A. will e-mail registrants upon the completion of their form, runners are not officially entered into the race until their qualifying time is verified. This can take a matter of seconds or days depending on the race.
The qualification window for the 2013 Boston Marathon will begin on Saturday, September 24, or as soon as 2012 registration closes.
