New Boston Marathon Registration System

In case you have not heard yet, The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) announced a change in its registration process for the Boston Marathon.

In order to avoid the chaotic registration frenzy that occurred last fall, they have created a new tiered system, forming runners into different groups or "castes" based on qualifying time. Each group has it's own separate registration date.

As you can see below, the BAA used the Indian Caste System as a model for this new registration process.
