Boston Offers 1 Minute 59 Seconds Grace

Boston Qualifying Times offer 59 seconds grace for anyone applying online. But apparently if you apply on paper the grace margin is increased to 1 minute and 59 seconds!

After several unsuccessful attempts to hit the 35-39 qualifying time of 3 hours 15 minutes, Jennifer McCreath was informed today that a 3:16:59 run in July will be accepted as a qualifier.

So if you are less than 2 minutes off your qualifying time get the pen out and apply in writing!
