Elite Athlete Information

Only applications submitted through the online elite application form will be considered. All athletes must have run on a certified course since January 1, 2018. An Elite Athlete application does not guarantee an entry into the 2019 Air Force Marathon. All applications must be approved by the Race Director, Brandon Hough. If your application is accepted you will receive an e-mail from the Race Director with a code to register for the marathon. All applications must be submitted no later than September 1, 2019.

Please submit your 2019 Elite application here by selecting Air Force Marathon Elite Application.

There are two elite entry standards for the 2019 Air Force Marathon, Elite and Sub-Elite. Elite athletes will receive a complimentary entry to the full marathon and a pro package (includes Breakfast of Champions ticket, Pasta Dinner ticket, race day parking pass, and race day VIP wrist band). Sub-Elite athletes will receive a complimentary entry for the full marathon.

Entry Standards

Meeting these standards does not guarantee elite entry or support at the 2019 United States Air Force Marathon. All applications are subject to the discretion of the Race Director.
