NYC Tightens Entry Standards

Many people don’t even realize that you can get into the NYC marathon by running a qualifying marathon or half marathon.  Their standards are high and most people get into the race using their lottery system.  They have decided to tighten their standards further.  It used to be that a man of my age would need to run a 1:23 half marathon or a 2:55 marathon for guaranteed entry.  Now I would need to run a 1:19 half or 2:45 marathon.  Ouch.
