Marathon Strides Against MS: Boston Marathon 2023 Application

Step 1 — Event Tickets

Thank you for your interest in joining the National MS Society’s Marathon Strides Against MS Team for the 127th Boston Marathon. 

Please note that this is an application and does not guarantee entry onto the team or into the marathon.  While we wish we could accept all runners who are passionate about raising funds and awareness for our mission to cure MS, we receive a high volume of applications and have limited invitational entries to the Boston Marathon.  If you are not selected for this year’s team, we hope to work with you in the future. Society staff will send additional resources of ways to get involved with the National MS Society with non-acceptance notices. 

We are looking for runners who are connected to MS or the National MS Society and are committed to raising a high level of funds and awareness for people living with MS and the Society’s mission to cure MS. 

The 2023 fundraising minimum is $7,500 per runner. 

Our application fee is in place to ensure we receive serious applications. If you are accepted to the team, your application fee will be applied to your registration fee. 

If this describes you, you may be great fit for the National MS Society’s Boston Marathon program! Please complete the application thoroughly. Thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you.  

  • This application will be open until Wednesday, October 5th at 11:59pm. 
  • Applicants will be notified of our decision by October 19th. 

Note: This application is for invitational runners only. Invitational runners are runner who will be using an entry from the National MS Society on behalf of the Boston Athletic Association’s Official Charity Program.
