Your Qualification is valid for 380 days and you can track the qualification period in your gfny.cc account. If you do a race during your Qualification period and don’t qualify at that race, don’t worry - your Qualification status remains valid, until 380 days from the date you earned the Qualification. If you re-qualify during an existing qualification period, your qualification date is extended to 380 days from that latest qualification date.
One-time qualification option
Race numbers are assigned by ticket type, qualification status, age group and distance. You can start with your friends if they are allocated to the same start corral as you. If they are in a different start corral, you can move back to start with them, but they cannot move forward to join you. “Jumping” forward a corral (starting in a corral not assigned to your number) will result in 10-minute penalty added to your finish time.
Race corral set-up may vary between GFNY races. Make sure you check the races website for more information.
GFNY Marathon Championship Races
The GFNY Marathon Championship Races will start in 2022.
If you finish a GFNY Regional Championship or the GFNY World Championship in the top 20% of your age group, you will start in the Qualifier Corral at all GFNYs for the next 380 days.
Overall Champions (man and woman) of a GFNY Regional Championship win flights, hotel and entry to GFNY Marathon World Championship to compete for the GFNY Marathon World Championship crown.
