HOW IT WORKS
As in the past, the number of lottery entries per person is determined throughout the year,
based on participation in certain races and volunteerism.
MYSTIC RUNNERS CLUB GUIDELINES FOR BOSTON MARATHON NUMBER RAFFLE
The club receives a quantity of official Boston Marathon entries from the Boston Athletic Association. Recipients will be chosen via a weighted lottery as described below. Official runners and alternates will be known when confirmation from the B.A.A. is received.
To be eligible for a marathon number a candidate must meet the following criteria:
* The lottery participant must be a member in good standing.
* Those chosen must complete a 13-mile or longer race (or equivalent run with another Mystic runner) by January 1st.
* Numbers are non-transferable and must be used by the recipient. If the recipient is unable to participate in the marathon or does not require a club-issued number, s/he must return it immediately to the Board so that it be assigned to the next alternate.
* Members are required to run in Mystic Club Gear
Members receiving and utilizing a club marathon number for two (2) consecutive years will not be eligible for the club lottery during the following year (i.e. 3rd year).
All members meeting the above criteria who want to participate in the drawing will receive one lottery entry.
