Registration for the 2012 Boston Marathon closed on Sep 25 at 5 p.m., and the Boston Athletic Association will begin notifying applicants of their status next week.
According to the BAA, there were almost 15,000 applicants in the first week of registration, which began Sept. 12 and was limited to the fastest runners within each qualifying standard. The second week, which began Monday, was for all others who had recorded a qualifying time in a marathon.
