A medical certificate is required for competitive races in France.
This certificate has to comply with the following criteria.
- The medical certificate is valid for one year. That means that your certificate can't be older than one year on the date of the race.
Example of a valid medical certificate: The Trail du Grand Ballon will take place on the 2nd of May, 2020. Your medical certificate is established by a physician on the 2nd of May, 2019 or later.
Example of a non-valid medical certificate: The Trail du Grand Ballon will take place on the 2nd of May, 2020. Your medical certificate is established by a physician on the 1st of May, 2019 or earlier.
- The medical certificate is established by a general practitioner or a physician and must contains his/her stamp.
A medical certificate without stamp is a non-valid medical certificate wich means you can't participate in the race.
- The medical certificate must be understandable by the organizer. A medical certificate in a language other than French or English is probably not understandable for the organizer and is consequently not valid. We recommend a medical certificate in French or in English.
You can download an example below on this page.
- The medical certificate must contains the next phrase in the language in wich the certificate is established: "...establishes that there are no contraindications to the practice of competitive sport."
- A valid FFA licence or a valid Pass J'aime courir can replace the medical certificate.
You can upload the medical certificate in your account during or after your registration.
