*With this being our first year implementing a non-binary elite category, we do not yet have enough data to establish non-binary qualifying times. Therefore, we will use the women’s qualifying standard times listed here, as they are inclusive of the qualifying times for the two existing divisions. As we prepare for future races, participants can expect non-binary times to be updated accordingly. We view this first year as an opportunity to learn and grow together.
