It appears that the Boston Athletic Association is done with the rolling windows of registration based on qualifying clearance. Now, the Boston Marathon registration is open just for 5 days.

The 2023 Boston Marathon registration is open from September 12 at 10am ET until September 16 at 5pm ET. This is a single window of registration in which everyone who wishes to run the Boston Marathon based on qualification needs to register.

But, it is not a first-come-first-served system. Instead, it is still based on your clearance of the qualification times as they will be filling the different age and gender groups based on how much time the runner had beaten the Boston Marathon qualifying time.

Speaking of the Boston Marathon qualifying times, here is what those are:

The good news is that, for the 2022 Boston Marathon every single runner who signed up and had qualified was able to run! For the first time in years, simply running the qualifying time was enough to get in.

Now that Covid is past what it was and people are traveling more than they have in years, I would expect that it will meet its 30,000 runner cap. Also, there is no requirement for Covid vaccinations this year, which were required last year.

But, there will continue to be two countries from which runners will not be allowed from – Russian and Belarus. If you are a resident of another country and a Russian or Belarusian citizen, you will be able to enter but not if you live in Russia or Belarus.

The price has gone up again this year as well. It will cost $225 for US residents and $235 for international runners.

Good luck to all of you! I hope to join you all on those hallowed streets in the next couple of years!
