Invitational Boston Marathon numbers up for grabs

The application period runs through Nov. 27 (charity application and participant application).
The Select Board will designate organizations and War Memorial Scholarship Fund runners who will receive invitational entries for the 2024 race. Entry recipients will be notified by Dec. 5.
