Qualification is only required for the 3K & 15K Pro divisions.

The 3K & 15K Age Group and Journeyman divisions do not require qualification to compete. The 100M, Team Relay and Charity Open do not require qualification for any divisions.


3K & 15K Pro athletes can use the table below to find qualifying races and criteria by region.  Qualification questions and race results can be submitted by clicking on “Submit Qualification Inquiry”.

*Additional Qualifying Criteria:

  • Only race results from September 1, 2023 to September 30th, 2024 can be used for Pro qualification.
  • No more than 50% of a division at a specific event can qualify (e.g. if a division has only ten competitors, only the top five athletes are deemed qualified, even if the criteria state that the top ten qualify).
  • In the event of an odd number of finishers, the qualifying criteria is rounded up in favor of the athlete.
  • Instances where a division has only one competitor will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by emailing the link to your results to [email protected].
