BOSTON – The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) announced last Friday that registration for the 2013 Boston Marathon® will continue today, Monday, September 24 at 10:00 a.m. ET for runners who have met the qualifying standards necessary for the submission of their application. Following an initial two-week, rolling admission registration period, which began on September 10 and concluded on Friday, September 21 at 5:00 p.m. ET, the B.A.A. will accept applications until the maximum field size is reached.

For the 2013 Boston Marathon, the qualifying standards were made five minutes more stringent for each age group and gender. The qualifying times in effect are listed on the B.A.A.’s web site at:

Those interested in applying for entry into the Boston Marathon must first meet the qualifying standard by running a certified marathon and posting a performance within the designated time for their age group and gender prior to submitting their application.
