We've been ask about "what Boston" can Baystate qualify you for...

When you run a Boston Qualifying time it is good for 18 months. So that said, if you run a BQ at the 2015 Baystate Marathon, then you are eligible/qualified for entry into the 2016 and the 2017 Boston Marathon events.

You might be able to enter the 2016 Boston - depending... on when they open registration and how quickly it sells out.
We continue to lobby the BAA to set their opening of registration for the weekend after Thanksgiving - that gives all the North American fall marathon participants a shot at the following Boston.

Managing Your Registration

You can manage and make changes to your registration on-line.

Things you can do are:

  1. Verify your registration and/or edit personal details
  2. Switch between the marathon and half marathon
  3. Transfer your registration to another person

Registration Confirmation

On the left side of the race website – below the registration button is the “Am I Registered” button.  Clicking that button will bring you to a page where you can enter the email address you used to register with (if you don’t know the email address you used – then you’ll need to contact registration@baystatemarathon.com).  Click here to see what that screen looks like.

After you click “Lookup”, if you are registered, the system will confirm it and provide a button to “Resend” your email confirmation.

Look for this email in your inbox.  If the email does not appear within a reasonable period of time (say an hour) – then check your junk/spam folder.

Once you have located the email, it will contain a link you can use to manage your registration.  Click here to see a sample of that email.

After clicking on the link in the email you are sent, you will come to a screen that allows you to edit aspects of your registration including: address, age, gender, phone numbers, email address, shirt size and the option to switch between the marathon and the half marathon and the option to transfer your registration to someone else for $12.  Click here to see a sample of that screen.

Switching Between the Marathon and the Half Marathon

From the link you were sent to, you can switch from the marathon to the half marathon or from the half marathon to the marathon.  There is no charge to switch from the marathon to the half marathon.  If you switch from the half marathon to the marathon, you must pay the difference in the registration fees.  Click here to see a sample of the switch screen.

Transfer Your Registration to Someone Else

You can transfer your registration to someone else for a transfer fee of $12, using the link in the confirmation email.

Here are a few points to consider before you make the transfer.  In these notes the person initiating the transfer is referred to as the ‘transferer’. The person receiving the transfer is referred to as the ‘transferee’.

  1. Registration transfer costs the transferer $12.00. This fee is non-refundable.
  2. Neither the transferer or transferee may cancel the transfer once initiated.
  3. The transferer’s registration will become inactive once the transfer is intiated.
  4. The transferer must supply the email address of the transferee.
  5. The transferee will receive an email containing instructions on how to complete the transfer. The email will contain a link to use for registration along with a special discount code. The discount code will deduct the value of the original transferers entry fee. If the transferee tries to register for a more expensive event, they will need to pay the difference before they are allowed to register (this includes prices steps based on date).
  6. If the transferee does not complete the transfer, the transferee’s registration remains inactive and the transfer fee is forfeit.
  7. It is the responsibility of the transferer to collect the entry fee from the transferee.
