I entered the Paris marathon, then went to my GP for the obligatory medical certificate. Problem is, he says that to sign me off as fit to race, he'll have to give me a full medical exam at a price of £110! This is more than twice the price of the entry fee. I'm sure he doesn't need to do a full examination but my GP is insisting he test my lung function, joints, heart etc. and that's an hour of his time (private rates) before he can give me the certificate.
I can't really pay this and am really disappointed because I so want to run Paris. Has anyone else found that their doctor charges this much?
Please advise if you can.
