Or, Now More Than Ever. Or, Perfect Timing. The Boston Athletic Association recently announced more stringent entry specs for those that are trying to qualify/enter into the world’s most famous marathon. From the baa.org website:
“1) Qualifying times are based on official submitted net time (also known as chip time).
Achieving one’s qualifying standard does not guarantee entry into the event, but simply the opportunity to submit for registration.
2) In recent years, not all qualifiers who submit an entry have been accepted due to field size restrictions.
3) If the total amount of submissions surpasses the allotted field size for qualified athletes, then those who are the fastest among the pool of applicants in their age and gender group will be accepted.”
It is with that in mind that the Valley 7 Lakes Marathon should be your spring marathon of choice. Our race committee has worked for the last 8 months ensuring you the very best opportunity to Run To Your Potential.
But ask your self this first: Are You Serious?
