127th Boston Marathon Target Full Marathon
In principle, full marathons certified by USA Track and Field (United States Track and Field Federation) or AIMS (International Association of Marathons and Distance Races) are eligible. Even if you clear the standard time in a full marathon that is not certified, you will not be eligible for entry.
However, starting this year, the regulations have been changed to “USATF, AIMS, or equivalent foreign accredited races ”. There are people who have been certified in races other than AIMS, so if you clear the standard time on the Japan Association of Athletics Federations official course, you may be recognized.
In my case, the AIMS-certified races I have completed in the last three years are:
- ‘Saitama International Marathon 2019’ (2:57:34)
- ‘Beppu Oita Mainichi Marathon 2020’ (2 hours 58 minutes 4 seconds)
- ‘Mt.Fuji Marathon 2021’ (3 hours 4 minutes 34 seconds)
- ‘Hokkaido Marathon 2022’ (3 hours 5 minutes 45 seconds)
The standard times for the 2023 event will be the Mt.Fuji Marathon 2021 and the Hokkaido Marathon 2022. All of them are qualified to enter because the finish record is faster than the standard time of 3 hours and 10 minutes.
