The medical certificate is the biggest cause of headaches for the Paris Marathon.
You will need one and if you don't have one you won't get your bib. This is a requirement of all French races and is basically an ar5e covering exercise.
The link for the blank certificate is below and I would advise that you use this form as the French are quite specific about the wording
The best thing to do is to book an appointment with your doctor for something else and while your there ask him to sign and stamp this form. The stamp is important. Explain to your doctor that there is no liability involved and they are not signing to say that you are fit to run, they are just signing to say that there's no reason why you shouldn't. There have been instances where doctors have amended the wording on the certificate. Try to discourage this as it could cause issues.
Race name is Marathon De Paris, or Paris Marathon, but don't worry about filling in the race number as we don't have that yet.
I would get this sorted as soon as possible, as it is valid for a year and you can submit it online and get it accepted beforehand. There's nothing more stressful than turning up at the expo and worrying about whether your certificate will be accepted
Phronesis. I'd be inclined to avoid the bus as road closures may cause a problem.There is a direct metro line from Montparnasse Bienvenue station to Charles de Gaulle Etoille which would take 16 mins
Hi all and thanks for the feedback. The undulations won't be anything like Boston last year so am hopefully better prepared. The luxury section sounds fab, maybe some foie gras and champers to ease down the gels too!!
