Boston Marathon to feature nonbinary category next year

Athletes will have the option to register as nonbinary in the 2023 edition of the Boston Marathon, the Boston Athletic Association (BAA) said.

“Non-binary athletes who have completed a marathon as a non-binary participant during the current qualifying window (Sept. 1, 2021 through Sept. 16, 2023) may submit an entry application into the 2023 Boston Marathon,” BAA said in a statement on Monday.

For nonbinary athletes, the qualifying standards will be the same as those in the women’s field, but the BAA added that the qualification times would be “updated accordingly” in future races.

New York’s Brooklyn marathon and half-marathon in April also featured a category for nonbinary athletes.
