How To Get Guaranteed Entry into the 2023 TCS NYC Marathon

While Spring is around the corner, Marathon Sunday is not that far off. If you’re interested in running the NYC Marathon this year, your only option left is going to be to sign up for a charity entry and fundraise the required amount. However, if you want to run the marathon in 2023, things aren’t looking bleak for you.

How To Get Guaranteed Entry to the NYC Marathon

The easiest way to get a guaranteed entry into the NYC Marathon if you aren’t a speed demon, is to qualify through NYRR 9+1 program. This means you race 9 of their qualifying races and volunteer for one by December 31st of the year prior. There are also 3 virtual races that qualify. This means that any races you run in 2022 will get you guaranteed entry for the 2023 Marathon, NOT 2022. Note that you must also have an active NYRR membership as of December 31, 2022.
