Vaccine Verification / COVID Testing

By now, all registered participants for the in-person 125th Boston Marathon should have received an email with instructions for scheduling a time to provide proof of vaccination OR scheduling a time for a COVID-19 test. Do NOT forget to schedule your vaccination verification / COVID test – this is mandatory for all runners. Bib pick-up will not be permitted without proof of a complete vaccination series or a negative COVID-19 test and the fastest path to pick up numbers for the 125th Boston Marathon is being fully vaccinated.

Participants who have completed a full series of a WHO-certified COVID-19 vaccination can schedule a time to visit the B.A.A. Vaccine Verification tent in Copley Square (corner of Boylston and Dartmouth Streets).An original paper copy, digital copy, photocopy, or photo of the participant’s vaccination proof is acceptable.

Participants who have not completed a full series of a WHO-certified vaccination can schedule a COVID-19 test in Copley Square (corner of Boylston and Dartmouth Streets). All participants who are tested for COVID-19 will be required to wait approximately 30 minutes for confirmation of their test results.

Important Reminder

In registering for the 125th Boston Marathon, all participants agreed to the B.A.A.’s participant waiver and adhering to COVID-19 guidelines. All participants must be prepared to isolate in accordance with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ guidance and assume all associated fees, including medical expenses and fees associated with isolating and travel in the event of testing positive for COVID-19. All participants and spectators are strongly encouraged to get tested in advance of traveling to Boston and must have a plan for isolation in the event of a positive COVID-19 test.
