Qualifying for a Championship place in the 2022 TCS London Marathon
The Championship qualification period for the 2022 TCS London Marathon opened on 1 January 2021 and will close on 31 December 2021. When you apply for a Championship entry we check your membership status with your national athletics governing body (see below). In order to simplify this process, we are moving the Championship entry application opening date from December 2021 to April 2022, so it better aligns with the governing bodies’ membership calendars. Please check back in early 2022 for more details.
Your qualifying performance for a marathon (or half marathon) must be run at an event that has a certified course. Race courses must be certified by UKA, the Association for International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS), or a national governing body for distance running for the country in which the race is held.
Additionally, you must be registered with your national governing body (ie England Athletics, Scotland Athletics, Welsh Athletics, Athletics Northern Ireland) otherwise we will not be able to accept your application. If you are unsure whether or not you are registered, please check with your national governing body.
Please note that all runners in the Championship start zone must wear their club vest.
