Hi,what half marathon time do I need to get to get an automatic entry?
I'm planning a few this year.
Is it sub-1 hr 30?
I'm a 22 year old female.
Cheers.

Hail Hail

As far as i know, there are no qualifying times for half-marathon distance. In your category, Good For Age qualifying time is 3.15-3.45 over a full marathon.
I know that you can qualify for NY marathon with a half time, but I;m not sure what your time would have to be.

They'll men into championship on the strength of a sub 75 half, not sure about ladies though...

They also let in a club mate on the strength of a 20 mile time (think it was 1:56ish) so there is scope for negotiation.

There are - it's 75 mins for a man.

I think it's sub 1:25 for a woman, but you'd need to ring FLM to make sure.

Does GFA apply to those under 35 then for a women?

I'm planning Tewkesbury on 7th May and probably one in the autumn, not sure which yet.

Hail Hail

Apologies JA. I stand corrected, and bow at the feet of those more knowlegdeable than me.

JA - don't bother. I just rang them to check on my entry and I asked them.

It's a sub 90 mins HM within the last 2 years.

Good luck.

Jane - it's not a GFA place, it's qualification for the UKA Championship Start.

Sub 90 minutes. My HM PB is 1:33 (35 F)...now there's a challenge. How can I get those last 3 minutes off?
