New Good For Age applications for the 2022 TCS London Marathon
You will be able to apply for a Good For Age (GFA) place in the 2022 TCS London Marathon when entries open later this year, so please check back here regularly. In the meantime, you can view the GFA qualification information below.
Rolled over entries from the cancelled 2020 London Marathon
If you had a GFA place in the cancelled 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon and are yet to roll over your entry and have not requested a refund, we will email you again later in the year to give you the chance to qualify and use your 2020 place at the 2022 TCS London Marathon at no extra cost – you do not need to apply again.
Good For Age qualification information
Good For Age entry is open to UK residents only.
The qualifying period for the 2022 TCS London Marathon began on 5 October 2020 and ended on 3 October 2021.
In order to apply for a GFA place in the 2022 TCS London Marathon you need to have achieved the qualifying time displayed below during the qualifying period.
Qualifying times must have been run at an in-person event that has a certified marathon course, or at the virtual 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon. In-person race courses must have been 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. Further information on qualifying through the virtual 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon is available below.
Meeting the qualifying time for your age category does not guarantee entry into the event, but simply the opportunity to submit an application. The maximum number of GFA places is 6,000 (3,000 men and 3,000 women). Places will be allocated on a ‘fastest first’ basis.
Irrespective of whether you have a GFA qualifying time, we advise you to enter the ballot, as a GFA qualifying time does not guarantee you a place.
You will be notified of the outcome of your GFA application before the ballot has been drawn. If you are successful in obtaining a GFA entry, your ballot application will be withdrawn.
