This year’s entry field for the Boston Marathon closed out more quickly than ever before.
The race, which will be held for the 115th time on April 18, will attract tens of thousands of runners and spectators to the Cradle of Liberty.
If you would like to be one of the participants, you still have a chance thanks to JetBlue!
The airline, which has sponsored the Marathon for the past six years, recently launched the Extra Mile contest which will grant four lucky runners a final spot in the race.
Entrants must be qualified to enter the race according to the guidelines laid out by the Boston Athletic Association and write a 262-word essay on why they deserve to participate in the 26.2 mile journey.
Winners will receive two round-trip tickets to Logan Airport, two-night hotel accommodations, and access to plenty of post-race events. To enter, visit www.jetblue.com/marathon.
