Time Qualifiers

The time-standard qualifying window for the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon was January 1-December 31, 2017. The time-qualifying standards, listed below, are for runners only. It's expected that the standards will be the same for the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon.

All applicants who met the time standards at the following NYRR races in 2017 are eligible for guaranteed entry in 2018: 2017 Fred Lebow Manhattan Half, 2017 United Airlines NYC Half, 2017 SHAPE Women's Half-Marathon, 2017 Brooklyn Half, 2017 NYRR Staten Island Half, 2017 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 are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you applied with a non-NYRR race qualifying time, you were placed in the non-guaranteed entry drawing until your time can be verified. Verification will be completed prior to the drawing on February 28, 2018. 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, is evaluated:
