Time Qualifiers

The time-standard qualifying window for the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon was January 1–December 31, 2018. The time-qualifying standards, listed below, are for runners only. 

All applicants who met the time standards at the following NYRR races in 2018 are eligible for guaranteed entry in 2019: 2018 Fred Lebow Manhattan Half, 2018 United Airlines NYC Half, 2018 SHAPE Women's Half-Marathon, 2018 Popular Brooklyn Half, 2018 NYRR Staten Island Half, 2018 TCS New York City Marathon.
 
A limited number of time-qualifier spots were available to runners who met the time standards in a non-NYRR race. These spots were filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Verification was completed prior to the drawing on February 27, 2019.
