QUALIFYING STANDARDS 

The Novant Health Charlotte Marathon is a certified Boston Marathon qualifying race. Potential qualifiers for the 2019 Boston Marathon must meet designated time standards corresponding with their age group and gender.

The following are qualifying standards set by the Boston Marathon: 

  • Achieving one’s qualifying standard does not guarantee entry, but simply the opportunity to submit for registration.
  • The acceptance of official race entrants will be based on qualifying time, with the fastest qualifiers (in relation to their age and gender) being accepted first until the race is full.
  • Only a certified full marathon distance will be accepted for qualifying. Distances shorter than a full marathon will not be accepted.
  • All qualifying times are subject to review and verification.
  • Minimum age requirement for the Boston Marathon is 18 on race day.
  • All standards are based on official submitted net time.
