Elite and sub-elite 10 KM Race criteria are typically used to designate specific qualification standards and benefits for professional and highly competitive runners. While specific criteria may vary among different events, here are the Run The City 10 KM Race elite and sub-elite classification rules and regulations:

  • Time Qualification: Elite & Sub Elite runners are required to meet strict time standards set by the organizers. These time standards are often significantly faster than the general qualifying times and vary depending on the event.
  • Proof of Performance: Elite & Sub Elite runners must provide recent race results (between 2022 and 2024) to demonstrate their competitive ability and consistency at the specified elite level. These results are reviewed by race organizers to ensure eligibility.
  • Invitations and Entries: Elite & Sub Elite runners are provided with guaranteed entry, Elite Area Access & Parking Slots.
  • Separate Start and Support: Elite & Sub Elite runners will start at the front of the race to ensure a clear path and optimal conditions. They also have dedicated support areas, fluid stations, and access to on-course amenities.
  • Exchange, Cancellation or Refund: Once any elite or sub elite runners registers, no exchange, switching of BIBs, race cancellation or refund is allowed.

It's important to note that the specific criteria and benefits for elite and sub-elite runners can vary from race to race. Events often have their own qualification standards and guidelines that are outlined on their official websites or registration materials.
