Extended race period to allow runners to double their medal moments
The AbbottWMM Global Run Club launched the fourth edition of the Global Marathon today which is set to be bigger and better this autumn.
Kicking off on Sunday 25 September with the BMW-BERLIN Marathon, the virtual event is open until Sunday 6 November when the TCS New York City Marathon – the final Abbott World Marathon Major of Series XIV – takes place.
The live leaderboard will show the runners’ performances throughout the race season and once all results are in and verified, those aged 40 and above will be in contention for one of 200 invites on offer to the top-placed runners across nine age categories for the 2023 AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Championships.
Runners can complete their 26.2 miles as part of a Major, another in-person race or plot their own course around their home! Those running at an AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group qualifying event will also earn world ranking points for the in-person qualification route, giving runners the perfect opportunity to double their chances of making it to the World Championships.
The Global Run Club is offering runners the chance to collect their Global Marathon medal at the AbbottWMM race expo of their choice. For Expo collection, runners must order two weeks ahead of the start of race week. The medal will be available for collection at the AbbottWMM booths in Berlin, London, Chicago, and New York City.
