The field size for the event, which will be April 15, is 27,000.

“While we would like to accept everyone who has qualified and would like to run, field-size limits are in effect to ensure the best possible event experience for all,” BAA executive director Tom Grilk said in a press release.

“We congratulate the many runners who met the challenge of running a personal best in order to qualify for the 2013 Boston Marathon, and we wish the best of luck to those who will be running marathons this weekend and throughout the fall with the hope of qualifying for the 2014 Boston Marathon. We are honored they have made running our race one of their athletic goals, and we admire their commitment to their own running.”

The qualifying window for the 2014 Boston Marathon began Sept. 22.
