The criteria for whether a marathon receives an IAAF Label designation is based on six general issues: race organisation, course timing and measurement, media services, quality of international field of runners, health and safety, and athlete equality.[1][2][3]

  • The race must be organised in accordance with IAAF Competition Rules, the standards of the national athletics body, and must comply with all relevant local and national laws. The race must be organised in a way that minimizes ecological damage to the surrounding areas.[3]
  • All courses must have been measured to AIMS standards and full electronic timing must be in place to provide split timing and final results.
  • The event must be broadcast live on television within the country, or delivered to a good standard through online streaming. Gold Label races must be broadcast in a minimum of five countries, while Silver Label races must have live coverage available on a national broadcaster. A centre must be specifically provided for media personnel, and TV monitors and commentary facilities must be present for Gold Label races. The race organisers must have a dedicated website with published results and must hold press conferences to support the event.
  • A minimum of five nationalities must be represented among the "elite" runners. At least five male and five female elite athletes must be competing in each race. "Elite" athletes are defined as those whose personal best within the 3 year period preceding the respective event has reached a standard set by the IAAF and published on the IAAF website.
  • All traffic must be closed off from the race course at all times during the competition. There must be adequate medical provision for the number of runners at the race. A number of doping tests must also be carried out after each race.
  • All prize money and bonuses offered should be equal, irrespective of the athlete's nationality or gender. However, race organisers are allowed to offer additional bonuses to competitors from the host country in order to boost local participation.

A maximum of 30 marathons may receive Gold Label status.[4] The label statuses are granted on a yearly basis and organisers must apply for renewal each year.[3]
