How tough will it be to get into the 2014 #BostonMarathon? Well, a traditional BQ might not be enough.

to 36,000 from 27,000, there will be approximately 4,500 more spots for time qualifiers than last year. About 3,200 of those spots will remain open after the BQ minus 5 minutes registration period – but there will be 15,000 runners with a BQ time vying for those spots. Given these numbers, the “real” Boston Qualifying time will probably be your BQ minus 4 to 4.5 minutes. The age graded numbers for BQ minus 4 and BQ minus 5 are very similar, so the analysis of which group is impacted the most remains valid.
