            The Harriers have again been granted special invitational Boston Marathon entries, four this year, which can be used for either qualified runners who have missed the entry deadline (already passed!) or those club members who do not meet the qualifying time standards.  We award these numbers according to which club members helped the club the most during the past year either through volunteering at races or competing for the team.  Please contact Fast Feet if you are interested.  Note the entry fee for these special entries is $355 this year and the entry deadline for these entries is Friday, January 13, 2017 and will be strictly enforced.
