Chicago marathon qualifying times

Announcing new qualification standards for 2025, The Chicago Marathon just surpassed the Boston Marathon in level of difficulty. The Chicago Marathon’s new standards are 5 to 10 minutes quicker than Boston’s.

Chicago split the seven former age groups to create 11 new groups spanning over five years, aside from the youngest 18-34 group. As the age increases, so does the time jump. You could be facing a 10-minute jump, 30-minute jump, or no jump at all in your required times since last year, depending on where you land in your category range. Curiously, the women’s standards have been altered much more dramatically than the men’s, and increasingly so in the older age groups.
