Time Qualifiers

The time-standard qualifying window for the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon is January 1-December 31, 2017. The time-qualifying standards, listed below, are for runners only. 

All applicants who meet the time standards at the following NYRR races in 2017 are eligible for guaranteed entry in 2018: 2017 United Airlines NYC Half, 2017 SHAPE Women's Half-Marathon, 2017 Airbnb Brooklyn Half, 2017 NYRR Staten Island Half, 2017 TCS New York City Marathon.
 
A limited number of time-qualifier spots will be available to runners who meet the time standards in a non-NYRR race. These spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you apply with a non-NYRR race qualifying time, you will be placed in the non-guaranteed entry drawing until your time can be verified. Verification may take up to two weeks. Runners who are not accepted after two weeks can contact mynyrr@nyrr.org and indicate their name and time qualification information. Runners who apply with a non-NYRR race qualifying time after the number of spots available is reached will be placed in the non-guaranteed entry drawing.

All times run must be at least as fast as the posted time. Net (chip) time, not gun time, will be evaluated:
