Boston Opens Spots....

Post  Nick Morris on Thu May 16, 2013 6:10 pm

It looks like those that didn't get to finish because of the bombing will now get an invitation to run in 2014. I wonder if this will limit the number of entries or expand them?? Either way it is a classy move by the BAA.

IMHO, the BAA has been an incredible class act in the way they've handled every aspect of this tragedy. This latest decision to allow runners who couldn't finish to run next year just confirms my opinion.

I would agree but at the same time to me this decision they made was a no brainer!

Assumed this decision was coming, and its absolutely the right thing to do.

Now I'm interested to see what the cap is going to be on the race...
