As the the Official Airline of the Boston Athletic Association’s (B.A.A.) 115th Boston Marathon and a supporter for six years running, we’re excited to announce today that we’re giving four qualified athletes a chance to run this year’s race with its Extra Mile contest. This year’s race – to be held on Patriots’ Day, Monday, April 18 – closed out earlier than ever before. Entrants must visit www.jetblue.com/marathon before Feb. 28, 2011, and in a 262 words essay tell JetBlue why they deserve to run the world’s most prestigious 26.2-mile road race.
The four winners will also receive a JetBlue Getaway for two, including roundtrip flights to Boston’s Logan, two-night hotel accommodations and access to the post-race events. To be considered, entrants must already be qualified in accordance with the B.A.A.’s standards for entry.
Registration for the 2011 Boston Marathon closed in record-time, as the race has witnessed unparalleled popularity in recent years. For a detailed description of prizes, eligibility, entry instructions, rules and information about the Extra Mile contest visit www.jetblue.com/marathon.
