Handcyclists seeking entry under this provision must have been active bona fide members of Achilles International since October 1, 2016, and must be selected for entry by Achilles International and NYRR.

Entrants Who Officially Cancelled Their Entry to the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon

Entrants who officially cancelled their entry to the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon according to the cancellation guidelines are eligible for guaranteed entry. 

Entrants who cancel their entry in consecutive years are not eligible for guaranteed entry after the second consecutive cancellation.

Handcyclists and other AWDs entered in the 2016 race through Achilles International who cancel are not eligible for guaranteed entry to the 2017 race unless entered by Achilles International in that race.

Runners who finish their 15th New York City Marathon will continue to be eligible for guaranteed entry in future years

This entry method is not available to handcycle applicants and other AWDs entered in past races through Achilles International.

Time Qualifiers  

The time-standard qualifying window for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon is 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 are 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 will be available to runners who meet the time standards in a non-NYRR race. These spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are applying with a non-NYRR race qualifying time, you will be 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 [email protected] 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:
