Select Board to accept requests for Boston Marathon bibs

104

Editor’s note: The following information was included on a press release from the town on Monday.

The Select Board will accept requests from organizations for 2021 Boston Marathon bibs, with a random selection planned to award the numbers.

In order to qualify for the selection, an organization must fall into one of two categories:

  1. Town departments, boards and committees that perform Boston Marathon functions who may distribute entries to organizations undertaking activities for the benefit of the Town of Hopkinton.
  2. Organizations undertaking public service activities within the Town of Hopkinton.

Each organization may request up to two invitations entries. However, the Select Board will announce a cap of invitational entries that an organization could receive on the day of the random selection. Organizations that receive invitational entries through the random selection may then distribute them directly to individual runners that agree to raise money for the receiving organization, may not transfer entries to other organizations or individuals, and must agree to comply with all terms and conditions set by the BAA and the town. Organizations wishing to apply, may only apply under one category. The Board requests that organizations who apply commit to a minimum of raising $5,000 per invitational entry they receive through the random selection.

Qualified organizations that would like to be included in the random selection must fill out the Town of Hopkinton 2021 Boston Marathon Invitational Entries Application, and submit to the Select Board/Town Manager’s Office by Sunday, April 18. Late applications will not be considered. Applications will be available online on the news section of the homepage on the town website, by clicking here, and in the Town Manager’s Office.

Applications will become available by the close of business on Wednesday, April 7.

Applications should be submitted via the online form or email to vdutta@hopkintonma.gov. Or mail hard copy to the Town Manager’s Office at: Select Board, c/o 2021 Marathon Invitational Entries, 18 Main St., Hopkinton, MA 01748.
