Registration for the 2019 Boston Marathon Begins On Sept 10th

Planning to be at the 123rd Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15th, 2019?

Registration begins in a few days on Monday, September 10th. Mark your calendars!


The race will once again follow a rolling registration, based on a qualifying time run since September 17, 2017:
  • Monday, September 10 - Qualifiers who have met the qualifying standard by 20 minutes, 00 seconds or more. 
  • Wednesday, September 12 - Qualifiers who have met the qualifying standard by 10 minutes, 00 seconds or more (if space remains). 
  • Friday, September 14 - Qualifiers who have met the qualifying standard by 5 minutes, 00 seconds or more (if space remains). 
  • Saturday, September 15 - Registration closes at 10:00 p.m. ET. 
  • Monday, September 17 - All qualifiers who have met the qualifying standard (if space remains) may submit an entry. 
  • Wednesday, September 19 - Registration closes at 5:00 p.m. ET. 
If space remains after this initial period, then on Monday, September 24 registration will re-open to anyone who meets the qualifying standards on a first come, first served basis. Registration will remain open until the maximum field size is reached.

Historically, you have had to have been faster than your qualifying time by 1:02-3:23 to get a spot since rolling registration has been in place (gets tougher every year!). Let's hope you have a speedy qualifier under your belt for 2017/2018, maybe even fast enough for Corral #1!

I'll be there for sure (#16 for me). Let me know if you're coming to Hopkinton!
