In order for an athlete to be considered for selection to represent Queensland at the championships they must complete the nomination form - see link below.

Due to the individualised nature of marathons, selections are at the discretion of the Queensland Heat Marathon Selection Committee. The committee will consider events from open cross country through to marathons, with performances at marathons to be given the greatest weight. Where applicable, the committee will give greater weight to performances achieved at Queensland Athletics permitted events.
