How it works
The Six Star Medal was introduced by the Abbott World Marathon Majors in 2016 to honor the runners who complete all six Major marathons.
In 2018 the Six Star program was digitized with a results hub created on AbbottWMM.com where runners can create profiles and claim all their ‘stars’.
Runners who notify us by emailing email@example.com that they will be completing their sixth Major at an upcoming event can receive their Six Star Medal at a designated point beyond the finish line and race medal collection area. Runners who create a profile here and claim six stars retrospectively will be sent their Six Star Medal by mail.
Upon completion of your sixth Major you will be included in the Hall of Fame.
Anyone who runs one of the six Abbott World Marathon Majors is on their Six Star Journey, with the ultimate goal to run all six and earn the Six Star Medal.
Create your Runner Portal today and any results from the Majors you have already run will be matched to you and stored in your Runner Portal.
There is no time limit within which you must complete all six races.
We award stars based on the results provided to us by each race, therefore if your time appears in the official results, your star will be awarded.
There are a few reasons a result may not match to you automatically, such as the use of a different name to enter the event to the name you have used to create your portal. You can search for results here and claim those stars which we can add to your portal for you.
Our system holds results for Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago and New York City dating back to 2006 and for Tokyo dating back to 2013.
Go to your portal and submit your proof of the result, such as an image of your finisher certificate or screenshot of your result, along with some proof of ID such as a passport or driver’s license. We will verify your information, create this result and add it to your portal.
This is exciting! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you have your sixth star place confirmed, we will then be in touch with the next steps.
Multiple completions of the same Major don’t earn you extra stars, but you can still store all of those results in your portal, and if you have completed all six more than once, you can generate different Six Star certificates for these completions in your runner portal.
You can view all these statistics in the Hall of Fame, as well as search for all the existing Six Star Finishers around the world.
Any AbbottWMM race completed on a virtual platform does not count as a star in our current Six Star program.
There are no plans at present to make any changes to the Six Star program. Any alterations will be communicated long before they take effect.
