Invitations for Elite status are based on recent performances in Canada, US and International competitions. Elite status receives one complimentary entry for the current year, front line access, VIP Tent privileges at the Finish Line and accommodations (limited rooms available) that will be awarded at the discretion of the Niagara Falls International Marathon. Please be advised there are limited elite complimentary spaces available for the number of requests received. In order to be accepted for Elite status you will need to provide documentation of races completed no earlier than January 2011 with specific races, dates and finisher times.
To qualify for Elite status you must have run a documented race that is faster than the following (Gun Time):
|Men||< 1:10:00||< 2:30:00|
|Women||< 1:23:00||< 3:03:00|
All Elite applications must be submitted no later than June 30, 2013. Applications will no longer be accepted after this date (no exceptions)!
Elites will be notified via email on the status of their application by July 31, 2013.
If you are not granted complimentary entry or you missed the deadline you are more than welcome to participate as a Paid Elite. Paid Elites will still receive front line access and VIP Tent privileges at the Finish Line. In order to verify your Elite status please submit your resume to the Niagara Falls International Marathon office to be registered as a Paid Elite. DO NOT register online!
