RRT 116: New Boston Qualifying Standards, March 2nd, 7pm EST

This past October, registration for the 2011 Boston Marathon filled in 8 hours, shutting out many qualified runners. A few weeks ago, the Boston Athletic Association (which manages the world's oldest continuous marathon), announced a new registration policy for the 2012 race and new standards starting in 2013. The reaction from the running community has been big! Some are pleased with the changes, while others point out the major flaws in the policies. Join us on Wednesday, March 2nd at 7pm EST to discuss these changes and how they impact the entire running community. The discussion will be lead by Amanda, Mark Ulrich (, Joe Garland (, & Craig Macfarlane but more are always welcome. Let us know what you think about these new standards!
