Boston Marathon qualifying standards to remain the same for 2025 and 2026

June 4, 2024

The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) announced that they will not raise the entry standards for the 2025 and 2026 Boston Marathons.

According to the B.A.A., the qualifying standards across all age brackets will remain the same as they were for the 2024 Boston Marathon. However, achieving a qualifying standard does not guarantee entry into the marathon. Those who are fastest among the pool of applicants in their age and gender group will be accepted if applications exceed capacity. Running Magazine
