Mad dash for 2017 Boston Marathon bib numbers begins Monday

The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — Ready, get set, registration.

The race to secure a spot in the 2017 Boston Marathon begins Sept. 12, when rolling registration for the 121st running gets underway.

Organizers say the same rolling registration method will be used again, beginning with the fastest qualifiers. Runners who have exceeded their age and gender qualifying standards by 20 minutes or more will get first crack at the 2017 race. If there are still open spots, registration will reopen on Sept. 14 for those who've run at least 10 minutes faster than required.

If there's still space, runners five minutes or quicker than their qualifying standards can apply.

Registration will close on Sept. 17.

Next spring's edition of the 26.2-mile race will be run on April 17, 2017.
