Registered runners who weren’t allowed to complete the Boston Marathon because of the finish line explosions can now register early for next year’s race.

The Boston Athletic Association says the registration periods for the 5,633 runners who had reached at least the halfway point before being stopped on April 15 runs until August 29. The eligible runners will be required to pay the entry fee but don’t have to re-qualify. The B.A.A. previously announced that those runners who couldn’t complete the race because of the bombs that killed three and injured more than 260 are from all 50 states and 47 countries and range in age from 18 to 82.

Regular registration is scheduled to start next month.
