Race Calendar > Qualifying Races for the 2013 Boston Marathon

Considered perhaps the most prestigious race of all anywhere in the United States, the Boston Marathon is as sought-after as it is largely because it's so difficult to get into -- you'll need to post a good enough time to qualify for the race, and do so at an event that's been designated by the Boston Athletic Association as an official qualifying race.

Here's a list of all of the official Boston qualifiers for next year's 2013 Boston Marathon, with links to their race pages on HalfMarathons.Net, or their official race websites. (Thanks to USA Track & Field for their help in compiling the list below.)
