Waivers

for the 2020 Boston Marathon

 

The Greater New Bedford Track Club receives a limited number of waivers from the Boston Athletic Association for the Boston Marathon each year. The criteria for the waivers can be found below. Last we had had a new system for selecting waivers. Read the information below to learn about the system. 

Waiver Rules:

  • Interested members must fill out the online or a hard copy the day of the jingle jog. The interested member must be a member of the GNBTC for the entire 2019 calendar year, and in good standing with membership dues. On the form the member must outline their involvement with the club during the calendar year. Such as meetings attended, and volunteerism. All volunteerism for the club events have been documented by the President. 

  • A committee will review each form. The members name will not be on the form but instead a number will be given so that the committee does not know the identity of members applying for a waiver. The committee will attach a score from 10-1 for each applicant. the highest scoring applicants are then selected. For more details info about the criteria click on the button. Please complete the form by December 15, 2019

  • Waivers will be presented at the January member meeting.
