Boston Marathon Registration Opens Tomorrow!

Boston Marathon
Written by Charlie

Tomorrow, September 8, is the day that thousands of runners have waited for – the first day of registration for the Boston Marathon. However, even though the registration window opens tomorrow, it does not mean that everyone can register tomorrow. As in years past, it will be broken down by qualifying time and tomorrow it opens for those runners who have beat their qualifying time by a whopping 20 minutes. Those who have qualified and did not beat the qualifying time by more than 5 minutes will have to wait until next Monday!

Registration Procedure

It is strange to think that, not to long ago, a marathoner could actually run a qualifying race as late as March and still run that year’s Boston Marathon! In fact, it was called the Last Chance Marathon.

Now, registration opens and closes in September – seven months before the Boston Marathon. This year’s registration procedure is the same as the last few years’ – a rolling registration that opens each day based on the amount of time the runner cleared the qualification time.


  • Race Day – April 20, 2015
  • Registration opens – September 8
  • Race Fee – $175 for US residents, $225 for international residents (same as last year, which is nice)
  • Qualification window for 2015 Boston – September 14, 2013 – registration closes
  • Registration Application – BAA
  • Field size – 30,000 runners
