The Marathon Beneva de Montréal is proud to be a qualifying event for the AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Championships.
The spread of the AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group Qualifying Events offers a unique opportunity for participants to compete with athletes in their age group from around the world. Qualified athletes will be invited to the 2024 AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Championships. The host event will be announced in the coming months. For information, the 2023 edition of the event (for athletes who qualified in 2022) will be held at the Chicago Marathon.
Participants aged 40 and over on race day are eligible to compete in the AbbottWMM Wanda Age Group World Championships.
The age groups are as follows for both men and women:

How it works ?
Any athlete competing in a qualifying event and achieving the automatic qualifying time for their age group will be invited to the World Championships.
Athletes who do not achieve the automatic qualifying time will still have the opportunity to be invited depending on the number of athletes who complete the qualifying time and the capacity of the host event.
To receive an invitation, you must be registered at AbbottWMM.com. If you participate in more than one qualifying event, only your best time will be considered.
