Last week I registered for Paris Marathon. Yep, that's right. PARIS Marathon! Oh La La! I love Paris! :)
Yep, that's right, April 11th 2011, just one month before Edingburgh Marathon...Wonder if my legs will still like me by then...
Registration opened on September 15th and I was adviced to register right away to get one of the cheaper tickets. And I got in! Only thing left is a medical certificate that I have to mail to the organization. France has specific rules for the registration for races, and one of this rules is that the runner has to show the organization a valid medical certificate. If you don't, you won't get your BIB number. Needless to say that I phoned my doctor about it right away!
It's a bit of work to get the certificate, because you need to get a medical check-up and ask your doctor to sign it. But, on the other hand, I think France made a wise decision here. Ofcourse the certificate will give you no guarantees at all, but at least the runners that are in no physical condition to run a marathon will know.
What are your thoughts on medical certificates pre race?
And do you know what the best thing about Paris Marathon is? The new and improved race course! Hello sightseeing!
All the sights are en route!
Paris Marathon is still 7 months away, and I'm already excited! :)
Who wants to join in the Paris Marathon fun and register?
