Application Process for 9+1 Guaranteed Entry

NYRR members who meet the 9+1 program requirements during a given year are eligible for guaranteed entry to the following year's TCS New York City Marathon but must still apply for entry; they are not automatically entered in the race. If a runner does not claim their guaranteed entry during the application window time period, their guaranteed entry is forfeited.

NYRR members who met the 9+1 program requirements during 2019 were eligible for guaranteed entry to the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon; they must still apply for entry. Runners completing their 9+1 program requirements for the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon must have completed their nine races and one volunteer opportunity by December 31, 2019. The application period for the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon was January 30–February 13, 2020.
