FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Assistant Town Manager Jim Duane and Team Framingham Steering Committee Chair Jenifer Feaster announced applications for the 2018 Team Framingham program are now available on the town’s website.
The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A) provides the Town of Framingham with 20 – 25 invitational Boston Marathon entries due to our “host community” status. In 2014, the Team Framingham program was established with two major goals:
• Provide town residents and town and school employees with an opportunity to participate in the Boston Marathon via one of these invitational entries
• Provide locally based charities with an opportunity to benefit from fundraising associated with the invitational entries.
“Since inception, the Team Framingham Boston Marathon program has been extraordinarily successful. 88 runners have completed the 26.2 mile Boston Marathon, raising more than $268,000 for local charities. We expect a high level of interest in the community and among town employees for a coveted invitational entry for the 2018 Boston Marathon,” Feaster said.
Applications for runners interested in participating in the random selection for these invitational entries are available on the Town of Framingham website or
at the Board of Selectmen Office in the Memorial Building.
The deadline for submission is Monday, November 27, at 4 p.m. at 4 p.m.
Team Framingham applications can be found online: www.FraminghamMa.gov/InvitationalEntryApplications
The random selection will take place on Monday, December 4, 2017 at 7 p.m. in the Ablondi Room at the Framingham Town Hall. It will be open to the public.
Submissions of completed applications can be made via email to TeamFraminghamMarathon@gmail.com or by drop off or US mail to the Board of Selectmen,
Marathon Bibs, 150 Concord St., Memorial Building, Framingham, MA 01702.
