On September 27, faculty member Richard Smith and STOR senior Spencer Siegel visited the Boston Athletic Association, organizers of the Boston Marathon, to consult about the qualifying standards that most runners must satisfy to enter the Boston Marathon. Richard previously acted as a consultant to the BAA in 2010 and 2018. Richard also gave a talk on this subject at the New England Symposium on Statistics in Sports, held at Harvard University on September 28. Further work on this theme is being developed as Spencer’s final year Honors project.
