They just don’t take anyone. Most runners have to qualify in lower profile marathons like Hartford before they can register for the elite races like Boston and New York.

I ran both the Hartford and Disney Marathons right before Covid hit and in no way did I even come close to qualifying for Boston…as much as I tried.

Eric is a great runner. Don’t be surprised if he can run it with at least a nine minute mile +/-. That’s about four hours. He’ll probably do it in less.
