How To Track Runners During The Boston Marathon

Some of you were asking about bib numbers for Boston and how to track me and some of the elite athletes on race day. We run on Monday morning, April 20th. The race starts at 7:30 AM Pacific Daylight Time (10:30 AM EST). TeamLIVESTRONG is in the second wave at 10:30 AM EST.

My bib number is: # 25277

*Note: If you have another friend you know running the race, you can look up their bib number at: You can track them using the following information, but sign up BEFORE race day!!

Track Your Favorite Athlete:

Want to track pre-race favorites, such as Boston Marathon legend Bill Rodgers, as well as Ryan Hall and Kara Goucher as they aim to become the first Americans to win in Boston since 1985? Or, do you want to track your favorite Cures Rock! Blogger and see if she actually crawls across the finish line? Now you can by using AT&T Athlete Alert. To track your pre-race favorites, simply text RUNNER to 41234 and you will receive an SMS text message asking you to reply with the bib number of the runner you would like to track. (Again, my bib number is: # 25277 )

Visit to view the names and bib numbers of the elite men and women fields. Once you've signed up, you'll receive the same updates as you will for your friends and family as they make their own way from Hopkington to Boylston Street. The service, available to US mobile phone users, will allow anyone to register for any of the elite bib numbers published on the Boston Marathon website and receive SMS text updates at 10km, Half-Marathon, 30km and their finish.
