Time Qualifiers

The time-standard qualifying window for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon was 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 met the time standards at the following NYRR races in 2016 were 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 are available to runners who met the time standards in a non-NYRR race. These spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you applied with a non-NYRR race qualifying time, you are placed in the non-guaranteed entry drawing until your time can be verified. Verification may take up to two weeks. If you are not accepted after two weeks, please contact mynyrr@nyrr.org and indicate your name and time qualification information. If you apply with a non-NYRR race qualifying time and the number of spots available has been reached, you 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:
