Registration for the 2014 Boston Marathon opens Monday.
The Boston Athletic Association is accepting an additional 9,000 applicants for the race in April, making room for the more than 5,000 runners who were unable to cross the finish line after two bombs exploded near the end of the race earlier this year.
Those explosions killed three people and injured hundreds more.
The Boston Athletic Association has also invited runners who want to honor those victims. Traditionally, runners have to qualify to run the prestigious race.
