Open Registration for the 2020 Boston Marathon Has Closed

The Boston Athletic Association thanks the running community for the support shown during 2020 Boston Marathon registration. Registration is now closed for qualified open athletes.

The B.A.A. recognizes and thanks all who have worked hard to achieve their goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon. Due to field size limitations, we are unable to accept all entries for next April’s race.

For those who applied for entry during Week One of registration (September 9 through September 14, 2019) but who do not yet see their name posted on the Boston Marathon’s Entry List page, please be aware that it may take several days or longer to verify qualifying performances depending on a number of factors. Please do not contact the B.A.A. during this period unless requested to do so by the Athlete Services team.

Runners who submitted their entry during Week Two of registration (September 16 through September 18) will be ranked based on their qualifying performance. The B.A.A. is in the process of verifying qualifying times.

The B.A.A. will not predict the "cut off" time needed to gain entry into the 2020 Boston Marathon. The total number of qualifiers and their qualifying times will determine the cut-off time. Due to field size limitations, not all qualifiers who apply will be accepted.

Registration for the Para Athlete Divisions and Adaptive Programs will re-open to Para Athletes on Monday, September 23 at 10:00 a.m. ET and will continue until field size limits have been reached or October 27, 2019.

The Boston Athletic Association thanks the running community for their continued cooperation and interest in the Boston Marathon.
