Tens of thousands of runners are competing in the Boston Marathon on Monday morning, but to get there, you have to qualify.
The only qualifier in New Mexico is the the Duke City Marathon, which takes place on October 19, 2014.
This year, Duke City Marathon board member Mario Cabrera says the top 25 men and women finishers will get free registration into the Boston Marathon if they qualify.
The DCM also offers six other races for runners of all levels: Half marathon, 10K run, 5K run, marathon relay, 5K walk and the brand-new 10K walk.
The marathon will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Central New Mexico again this year.
