Registration to be held within the B.A.A.’s online platform, Athletes’ Village, from September 12–16
BOSTON— With less than a month remaining until registration begins for the 127th Boston Marathon, the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) today announced additional registrant information for next April’s race. The 127th Boston Marathon will be held on Monday, April 17, 2023, featuring a field size of 30,000 participants.
Registration will take place over five days, opening on Monday, September 12 at 10:00 a.m. ET and closing on Friday, September 16, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. ET. The B.A.A. will use the same registration process for qualified runners as it used for the 2021 and 2022 races, allowing any athlete who has achieved a currently valid Boston Marathon qualifying time to submit a registration application between September 12–16, 2022 through the B.A.A.’s online platform, Athletes' Village.
Registration is not on a first-come, first-served basis and applications will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, September 16. The 2023 Boston Marathon qualifying window began on September 1, 2021 and will close at 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, September 16.
Qualifying standards for the 127th Boston Marathon can be found here. Qualifiers may submit an application at any point during the registration window. Achieving one’s qualifying standard does not guarantee acceptance into the Boston Marathon. Those who are fastest among the pool of applicants in their age and gender group will be accepted. All applicants will receive notice of acceptance or non-acceptance in October.
The entry fee for qualifiers will be $225 USD for United States residents and $235 USD for international residents. For the third straight year, participants will have the opportunity to purchase registration insurance at the point of registration. Additional 127th Boston Marathon registration information can be found on baa.org.
The B.A.A. encourages all participants to be fully up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations prior to participating in the 127th Boston Marathon. At this time, proof of vaccination will not be required for participation in the 2023 Boston Marathon. However, all participants are expected to follow B.A.A. protocols and procedures related to COVID-19 mitigation and public health including, but not limited to, potential proof of negative testing, potential proof of vaccination, and wearing a face mask in designated areas. B.A.A. COVID-19 mitigation efforts are subject to change and will be guided by policies and procedures established by the CDC, state, and local public health officials in the lead up to April’s event.
The qualifying window for the 128th Boston Marathon, scheduled to take place on April 15, 2024, will begin on September 1, 2022. Registration details for that race will be announced following the 2023 Boston Marathon.
