"To qualify and ultimately participate in the Boston Marathon is the pinnacle moment for a vast number of runners,” said Tom Grilk , B.A.A. Executive Director. “The Boston Marathon represents the ultimate goal and highlight for many athletes from all across the globe. To inform those who have qualified that there is not enough space for everyone in the field is tremendously difficult. The entire B.A.A. organization has worked hard to ensure a fair registration procedure that gives runners who have qualified the best opportunity to enter the Boston Marathon. Working with many constituencies, an optimal field size has been determined to ensure the best race experience for runners, spectators, and the community. We thank runners for their understanding and support of the Boston Marathon year in and year out."
