Looking for the fastest Boston qualifying marathon? Here are Boston qualifying marathons listed by fastest winning time, which are a rough indicator not only of a fast course, but of a race's stature (i.e., if a marathon has a sub 2:05 winner, that's a good indicator it's a major event with large crowds to cheer you on!).

Finisher count in parentheses. All stats from 2013 unless indicated otherwise.
