Elite Athletes & Prize Money

Elite Athlete Information

2020 Elite applications will be available once registration opens January 1st, 2020.

Only applications submitted through the online elite application form will be considered. All athletes must have run on a certified course since January 1, 2019. An Elite Athlete application does not guarantee an entry into the 2020 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, 2020.

There are two elite entry standards for the 2020 Air Force Marathon, Elite and Sub-Elite. Elite athletes will receive a complimentary entry to the marathon and a Pro-Package (includes Gourmet Pasta Dinner ticket, race day parking pass, and race day wristband for access into Pro Package tent). Sub-Elite athletes will receive a complimentary entry into the marathon.

Elite Entry Standards

Meeting these standards does not guarantee elite entry or support at the 2020 United States Air Force Marathon. All applications are subject at the discretion of the Race Director.
