Good For Age applications for the 2022 Virgin Money London Marathon
The qualifying period for the 2022 London Marathon began on 5 October 2020 and will end on 3 October 2021.
Good For Age (GFA) entry is open to UK residents only. In order to apply for a GFA place in the 2022 London Marathon you need to achieve the qualifying time displayed below during the qualifying period (5 October 2020 to 3 October 2021).
Qualifying times must be run at an in-person event that has a certified marathon course or the virtual 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon. In-person 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. 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 for the 2022 London Marathon, as a GFA qualifying time does not guarantee you a place. You will be notified 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 If you are successful in obtaining a GFA entry, your ballot application will be withdrawn. The ballot for the 2022 London Marathon will open on Sunday 3 October 2021.
