* All times must be run at, or faster than, the posted time.
** Your age on the day of the qualifying race.

The qualifying window was January 1-December 1, 2016.

Times achieved outside of NYRR races must be verifiable online. If you apply with a non-NYRR race qualifying time, you will be entered into the non-guaranteed entry pool until your time can be verified. Verification may take up to two weeks. If you are not accepted after two weeks, please contact us; include your name and time qualification information.
