The first time Dave McGillivray remembers running — that is, running for a purpose, running with the intent of outpacing the competition, running with a finish line somewhere off in the distance — was when he was 5 years old.

Long after the champs are crowned in laurel wreaths, after the roadblocks have been cleared and the cheering throngs have left, Dave McGillivray can be found loping through the dark toward Boylston Street, with his own motorcycle escorts, sweating through his annual tradition of being the last runner to cross the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

Ask the Race Director: Why can't I defer my entry?

Why are more and more marathons not allowing deferments? Registration is always way in advance, and training is several months long. A lot of things can happen between registration and race day. Twice this year, I registered for a marathon, got hurt during training, and was unable to run the race. I still want to run these races; it's not like I just changed my mind at the last minute. I understand the no refund policy, but I don't understand why I can't defer. What's the reasoning behind not allowing deferments? Thanks, Lisa V.
