How it works
In a new format for 2023, athletes will be ranked according to their single fastest time in a qualifying event. Every athlete will appear in the rankings.
Any athlete achieving the Automatic Qualifying Time for their age group will receive an immediate invitation for the 2024 AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Championships, to be held within the 2024 Sydney Marathon on September 15.
Runners who do not achieve the Automatic Qualifying Time still have the opportunity to receive an invitation to enter the World Championship depending on the full field size and the number of athletes achieving the qualifying time.
In order to receive an invitation, runners must be registered at AbbottWMM.com.
The AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Rankings comprise over 350 qualifying races in which athletes in nine separate age groups can compete in marathons across the world to earn a global ranking.
