Boston Marathon Entries Available
The Selectmen have recently adopted a policy on how invitational entries for the Boston Marathon are awarded.
The policy provides two entries each to police and fire in recognition of the major role they play in the success of the marathon annually. While they have run the marathon in the past, this policy clarifies the number of bibs available. New this year is the opportunity for other town employees outside of those departments to run the race. Attached is the approved policy, which sets aside two entries for employees or residents. Depending on the applications received, the policy sets out a method to choose those runners, who must agree to raise at least $4,000 for the Town’s War Memorial scholarship. The remaining entries go to charities that contribute to Wellesley, and they too must raise at least this amount for the charity that chooses them to run on their behalf.
