The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Boston Marathon Offers 2014 Entry to 2013 Non-Finishers Due to Bombing

The Boston Athletic Association sent out an email this morning to runners that did not finish the 2013 Boston Marathon due to the bombings that took place near the finish line.

Here is what the info from BAA said:

“You are receiving this email because you have been identified as a 2013 Boston Marathon participant who reached at least the half-marathon mark on April 15 but who did not cross the finish line on Boylston Street.
B.A.A. Extends Special Invitation To 2013 Boston Marathon Starters Who Did Not Cross Boylston Street Finish Line.

The B.A.A. is extending an invitation to register for the 2014 Boston Marathon to official entrants in the 2013 Boston Marathon who were unable to cross the Boylston Street finish line.”

To be eligible, a 2013 Boston Marathon participant must have been an official entrant who started the race and who reached the half marathon mark in this year’s race on Monday, April 15. Registration for the 2014 Boston Marathon is scheduled to occur in September, and 2013 Boston Marathon participants who were unable to cross the finish line on Boylston Street will receive a non-transferable unique code in early August to be used for entry. An applicant’s entry will be guaranteed only during a designated registration period. Participants will be required to pay an entry fee, which has yet to be determined.

Class move from a classy organization. However, if you were hoping to qualify and gain entry for the 2014 Boston Marathon it is going to be difficult unless they plan to open up more slots.
