Time Qualifiers

The time-standard qualifying window for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon is January 1-December 31, 2016. The time-qualifying standards, listed below, are for runners only. It's expected that the standards will be the same for the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon.

All applicants who meet the time standards at the following NYRR races in 2016 will be eligible for guaranteed entry in 2017: 2016 United Airlines NYC Half, 2016 MORE/SHAPE Women's Half-Marathon, 2016 Airbnb Brooklyn Half, 2016 Staten Island Half, 2016 Memorial Sloan Kettering's Fred's Team Presents Grete's Great Gallop, 2016 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. Additional details will be available in early 2017.

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