How can I qualify for the 2024 championships?
There are three ways to qualify for the championships. Full details here.

Where and when are the 2024 Age Group World Championships?
The date, field size and location can be checked at AbbottWMM.com
What time do I have to run to qualify?
Your Automatic Qualifying Time is based on your age on race day of the qualifying event which you are taking part in. See above for the full list of Automatic Qualifying Times.
What happens if I change age group during the qualifying season?
You will only change age group if you have a time in one age group and then complete a race in your new age group. In this case, you will automatically move into the new age group and the time achieved in your new age group will be the time used for your ranking position. Note: we can restore your original age group’s result on request to firstname.lastname@example.org
What if I change age group after I have earned qualification?
Your age on World Championship race day will determine the age group you compete in.
What are the Automatic Qualifying Times?
Please see the table further up this page.
How can I get an invite if I don’t run the Automatic Qualifying Time?
Athletes in the rankings who have not achieved automatic time qualification may receive an invitation based on the number of athletes who meet the Automatic Qualifying Times and do not take up their place. The number of athletes who receive invitations through this pathway will be determined during the rankings season.
Why are there no ranking points anymore?
We have changed the system to be based on time in order to reward the fastest athletes with automatic championship qualification.
