There are 2 ways to qualify
1) Participate in a Five Star managed event and be one of the top finishers.
2) Participate in another 5K or 10K race on a certified course, and submit your time (you'll need to qualify based on the time chart).
Do the times look weird? That's because it's from a sampling of the 2015 qualifiers and the times they ran in their qualifying events.
