The Boston Athletic Association has issued an update for Boston Marathon runners regarding official times, and is asking for patience regarding a decision on how it will handle runners who were forced to stop running Monday's race.
The following was posted to the BAA's Boston Marathon Facebook page.
The Boston Athletic Association has yet to issue official times for all runners who participated in the 117th running of the Boston Marathon.
It is our intention to release those results on or about Friday, April 26th. At that time, you will receive a link that will provide you with the opportunity to pose questions regarding that official time.
We will also address the issue of those who could not cross the finish line on Boylston Street due to the tragic events which occurred near the finish line. We ask for your patience as we work to resolve the final results and times for these participants.
