We appreciate the patience of all our runners as we assessed the entry options that we are able to offer this year, following the unprecedented cancellation of the 2012 ING New York City Marathon and our Resolution process for 2012 marathoners. Our focus throughout the 2013 registration process is to maintain the important diversity of our entrants. Based on the 2012 Resolution results, we are very pleased to announce that in 2013, NYRR will be able to maintain our commitments in the following categories:
- NYRR members who met the 9+1 program requirements for guaranteed entry eligibility for the 2013 Marathon
- Marathoners who qualify for entry by having finished 15 previous New York City Marathons
- Applicants who would have qualified for the 2013 Marathon entry by being denied entry three consecutive times
While we will maintain a process for accepting time qualifiers, we regret that there will be limited availability.
- The overall pool of time qualifiers will be capped at 2,000; time standards and the qualifying window will remain as originally posted on our website
- Those who qualified during the window in an NYRR race (the 2013 Manhattan Half-Marathon, NYC Half 2012, 2012 Brooklyn Half-Marathon, 2012 Grete’s Great Gallop, 2012 More Magazine/Fitness Magazine Women’s Half Marathon, or 2012 Staten Island Half-Marathon) will be guaranteed non-complimentary entry
- The remaining time-qualifier spots will be filled by a special random drawing; those not selected will be entered into the general marathon drawing
Time Qualifying Standards
Runners who meet the following qualifying time standards in a half-marathon or marathon (results must be verifiable online) between January 1, 2012, and January 31, 2013:
Registration to apply for the 2013 marathon will be open from April 24 to May 24. The non-guaranteed entry drawing will be held at the end of May. Further details and terms and conditions will be available on this site when application is posted. Thank you for your continued patience and engagement with us through this process.
